Check out these classic NBA plays from November 12th 1994...That is over 20 years ago! Geez, I feel old.
It sounds like my investment in video games hasn't just been for fun - I been training! I vote they force people to Call of Duty for a week straight before handing them a drivers license.
With so much video game research focused on how the violent games affects kids, it is good to see some positive research. They should do some research on how many shitty parents let their young kids play these violent video games. I would love to see those results.
So yesterday I am sitting in traffic and my road rage is elevating. As I watch the cars in front of me respond to road signs, traffic lights, and the general traffic situation I start to wonder why they are so damn slow! As I roll up next to a few of the cars, I notice a lot of them are on their phone (no surprise). Unfortunately, I am guilty of doing the same thing myself and still I manage to pay pretty close attention to the traffic. Then a crazy idea hits me, maybe these people don't play video games and that's why they suck at driving.
I start to think about it as I sit there in traffic waiting for the person who blocked the intersection and is impeding everyone who has the green light because she couldn't wait to make her turn (road rage bubbles). So I did some research online and apparently, there is plenty of studied that point to video games leading to better response time. For example a particular study at the University of Rochester reads as follows:
"The researchers found that video game players develop a heightened sensitivity to what is going on around them, and this benefit doesn't just make them better at playing video games, but improves a wide variety of general skills that can help with everyday activities like multitasking, driving, reading small print, keeping track of friends in a crowd, and navigating around town."
