pla-station4- can it be for educational?

this is a basic question as i am not familiar with play-station.

would there be any educational value to gift a student this?
what age group is this most apt for (min age?)
can this be addictive if given to a teen (if not education means are sought)?

thanks for any input. i will value that.

When you refer to educational value, I assume explicitly designed games for educational purposes.
There are more educational games on PC than on PS4.

Most games have age ratings labels on them. My nephew started at the age of 5.
There are studies that suggest that overall, gamers have greater cognitive function and more grey matter.

Yes, it may be addictive given to a teen (but many other activities can too).

>>There are more educational games on PC than on PS4.
so PS4 would be strictly for recreational games, right?

>>more grey matter
what does that term mean, please?

can you suggest a link where there is categories of games that come with PS4 listed? (like car chase maybe one main category, war maybe one, what else?

also, would there be a list of more 'girlish' games than boys (war/fight etc)?

also any category of 'moral' games? (that teach some value by the way the games end each time) .

Yes, in my opinion. More recreational.

Grey matter is brain tissue, the more you have, the better. Read the study in the link in my original post.

On the Playstation website [called Game Finder] is a list of game that you can sort by Genre (like Family / Fighting / Horror etc...) or Age Rating.

You can find more game on Wikipedia and Gamespot.
