    This is a load of BS because when you are playing a video game you are using your brain because you are reading text if any that the game provides plus the hand to eye coordination as well uses a part of the brain.

    This is all bollocks! Take some cocaine, get drunk, get wasted that's what kids should be doing! not thinking about strategies for DOTA/LoL or how to sneak past the camper on Cod/BF or TF2

    Using your brain... that so 1440!

    I used to know what you mean ;)


    FFS THIS SO TRUE! BOONS ALL AROUND! :D


    But basically, yes, this is incredibly stupid. Such researchers should be put onto the streets to pick up trash, they're just wasting precious tax payer's money.

    Well this explains why every COD is the same. The devs have completely forgotten what they developed last time!

    I think people have to look at it from a different angle: People being depressed, they have social anxiety, ... etc

    They might have a higher tendency to get into games. So perhaps "gaming" is more of symptom rather then the cause.

    Possibly, but the study seems to think long term video game playing is the cause, action games in particular.

    The problem is that it's a study done with 26 people, so pointlessly small and flawed.
