YEAH, THAT’S WHAT I REMIND MYSELF OF WHEN GAMING: AN ASTRONAUT [Author: BruceR]

Computer games are good for you, says a study from the British Economic and Social Research Council:

“People who play games regularly seem to develop a mental state that we have seen before only in serious athletes or
professionals SUCH AS ASTRONAUTS, whose life depends on
concentration and co-ordination,” said Jo Bryce, who led the
research. “Their minds and bodies work together much better
than those of most other people.”

So, so far this week, we have studies that say games make you both more violent AND more intelligent. I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say we must regulate and restrict these new gameplaying superbeings, before they use their mutant powers to get John Romero his job back, or some other such horror.

God help us if they learn how to breed…
