Video Games As Therapy?

Interesting comment from the guy behind Papo & Yo, a game based on the creators own childhood experiences.

Therapy is exploration, as is gameplay. I think that video game simulations are the perfect tool where you can actually go back and relieve those memories, even if they are painful to you and find a way to cope with them.
