From Wikideida: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meditation
Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content, or as an end in itself.
Meditation is a technique to train our mind. If you want to perform better in sports you train your bodily skills, muscles, dexterity, reactions and so on. If you want to improve your mental capacities you use meditation. But beware. Just like you can use your body to help others you can also use it to hurt others. Therefore you should have a clear conception of why you want to train your mind. Therefore it is important to have some understanding of the metaphysical context in which you want to practice meditation.
Playing video games is a way to train our mind and thus it can also be a kind of meditation. Depending on what kind of video game you are playing you will train your mind to exactly those goals. Imagine what happens when you play killing games by training your mind on ego shooters. Need say more?
