I wasn't ignoring you to play stupid video games--I was ignoring you so I could attempt to improve the health of my eyes! Do you feel bad now? I hope so.
Reports Lee Bowman:
"In [the current issue of the journal Psychological Science], researchers from the University of Rochester in New York report that playing action video games for an hour or so daily actually helps sharpen visual acuity. "
I have to say, this seems like a perfect storm--no college basketball or Heroes tonight; this study comes out, and I get God of War II in the mail today?
Clearly the universe is saying, "Damn it, man. Play some God of War II tonight. And maybe a little Guitar Hero, too."
Fine, universe. You win.
