View Full Version : Gaming: Good for the mind
A body of research suggests that playing video games provides benefits similar to bilingualism in exercising the mind. Just as people fluent in two languages learn to suppress one language while speaking the other, so too are gamers adept at shutting out distractions to swiftly switch attention between different tasks.
So there ya have it folks. Not only is gaming not turning us all into mindless killers, like Mr Jack Thompson would have you believe, but it is actually enhancing your ability to multitask. And who knows what other great things it does for all of us. :D
ooh... so that's why I am able to do my course work and watch tv at the same time...:lol:
Now i know why I could watch tv, play on a gameboy, read out of a book, type on a computer and talk to three friends on aim at the same time when I was in 8th grade. SCREW YOU Mr. Jack Thompson! I may be a "mindless killer" but at least i'll be keeping track with things. You on the other hand are still in the age of the 20's, when alcohol was cause of all things evil...

For those of you dying to see a comparison of Capcom's upcoming horror survival sequel Resident Evil 5, Gametrailers.com has posted a video comparison of the Xbox 360 and PS3 demo for your forum debates.
To us, there really isn't much of a difference. Maybe for the nit picky, you could say that the Xbox 360 displays warmer colors, but that's about it.
