ADHD patients play video games as part of treatment

A reader asked me if I knew of any games that can be used to treat ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder - it is called TDA/H in some other countries).

A quick Google turned up this USA Today article that discusses the issue (and amusingly mentions players 'slaying Spyro the Dragon').

It seems far from clear that this is a proven, effective technique to treat ADHD. But then, the impression I get is that ADHD in general is a very thorny issue.
