That's what SHE said!
Also I had another thought about this study... hence the second comment. Our history is full of REAL violence. Now we shun real violence and aggression as a society so people replace it with virtual death. which would you rather have?
Of course it changes the brain. Everything changes the brain - pictures you see, books you read, TV you watch, language you speak, where you are and to where you go... The real question is HOW it changes the brain and what part of it. Speed of response? Cognitive capabilities? Or makes you more violent /really?/? Of course it improves your cognition and automatizes your reaction. Every kind of training does that. It is supposed to do /exactly/ that.
Major flaw in that conclusion! How can they say there is "long term effects" when after a week of not playing the brains of the gamers had almost returned to the state of the non gamer brains?! Idiots! Clearly it's a "short term" effect. Combine that with a complete and utter lack of behavioural and social research done in tandem with it makes this study as relevant as ducks nuts to any rational human being... Oh and get real most gamers don't play for more than an hour or 2 a day... so how about basing it on real people not extreme examples...
i played habbo hotel & TTD 8 hrs a day for a week last xmas. weather was awful & no customers, so just played that at work every day. guess what i though about the entire next week while on xmas holiday? stupid habbo & trains! lol. it's not the violence that's screwing people's brains up, it's being forced to play that one specific game every day for hours. tho i'm sure it'll be scapegoated into an excuse to ban violent games.
WOW!! 10 hours a day would gimme no head.....by the end of the month. Real dumbass experiment, what are they trying to say, Farmville is better than MW?
No wonder they end up wasting such a lot of time and money at the R&D facilities , cos they keep ending up with no good results of stupid things like this.
As others have noted I think also that this is a dumb waste of money that should of been put together in a more realistic way.
Who the hell would sit there and play COD or some other shooter for ten hours straight at a time and for days after days as well.
Not a good experiment.poorly laid out and executed.most people would sit down for no more than an hour or two.We all have a life and other things to do and see !!!
[citation][nom]Daltron2000[/nom]Wow what a dumb experiment. It couldn't just be playing video games that changes brain functioning, it has to be VIOLENT video games. Get your life together and do some real science.[/citation]
Thank you for showing how quickly you become very angry. You prove the premise of the article perfectly.
