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.
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."
