I can't personally see what's unwholesome about it, however it's not going to help your practice in any foreseeable way.
I play a lot of games, and I can say this from experience; the more you get into your meditation, the less attractive games are (same stands for movies, whatever).
Although, they certainly present a better form of entertainment than intoxicants and the like, but they do have an addictive nature. If it doesn't get in the way of your practice/personal life, I say play on. If it does, perhaps you should take a look at how you're spending your time (again, that stands for any form of entertainment).
My 2 cents. edited for spelling
