Gaming for good, not evil

According to recently published research that has geeks the world over rubbing their hands with glee, playing video games may actually be quite beneficial:

“The researchers have shown that gamers were particularly good at spotting details in busy, confusing scenes and could cope with more distractions than average.”

This is just the kind of thing I need to hear when Unreal Tournament 2003 is on its way for the Mac. If the demo is anything to go by, I’m going to be spending many hours sharpening my skills.

If the game proves to be helpful in improving my visual skills, I think it’s only fair that it should be tax-deductable.
