OMG, my "time waster" is good for me! Gamers have more grey matter & better brain connectivity study suggests. Whoot! Might I suggest my favorite: Shroud of the Avatar 😇
Pam, you may be interested in looking these other two things (I'm at work so I can't get the links). Apparently surgeons who are gamers are better than non-gamer surgeons. I believe it's something to do with the fact that gamers make tons of minute movements with a control that's not in their line of sight. Also, and for similar reasons, proprioception is re-wired in gamer brains. fMRI shows that body movements outside line of sight light up different areas of the brain depending upon whether or not you are a gamer.
Been playing video games almost constantly since 1986. Played over 600 different games at this point.
