Video Games Lead to Faster Decisions That Are No Less Accurate
I stand by my opinion that sports & games (tennis, card games, etc) help develop cognitive & social skills & I'll still argue against long hours of video play & the violent games, but I concede there are positive effects:
ScienceDaily (Sep. 13, 2010) — Cognitive scientists from the University of Rochester have discovered that playing action video games trains people to make the right decisions faster. The researchers found that video game players develop a heightened sensitivity to what is going on around them, and this benefit doesn't just make them better at playing video games, but improves a wide variety of general skills that can help with everyday activities like multitasking, driving, reading small print, keeping track of friends in a crowd, and navigating around town.
