Gaming could be good for you
I have some good news for gamers, if there's any truth in a headline I read in this morning's Metro newspaper here in London:-
War gamers 'are more successful and happier'
According to experts in psychology at the University of Sterling, certain types of video game could have a beneficial effect on players by training useful brain functions.
Some war games enhance a memory skill vital in situations including job interviews and training.
Is this too good to be true? You can read the article for yourself on the Metro e-edition where the complete printed newspaper is available online. (While you're there, you'll also find interesting techy articles on pages 9 and 19.) An earlier version of the same article was posted yesterday on the Metro web site.
