  • Video Games Not a Waste of Time After All

    Check it out.

    *yawn* Slashdot repost.

    Anyways, I'd argue that Thievery -- at least the way I play it -- is far more beneficial than playing Vice City, which I'm also going through right now. In Thievery, I'm trying to actively outwit human opponents, as well as improving my "visual skills".

          All I can say is:

          Well duh, I could have told you all that without the research. Though the part about training military soldiers with CounterStrike, sure it improves your visual acuity(sp?), wit, and reflexes, but that doesn't mean you should skimp on practicing at a targeting range.

            But wait . . . I play video games to dull my mind, not sharpen it! And all this time I thought I was getting closer and closer to a vegetative state. I guess I'll have to spend more time drinking and watching television.

              Seriously, tell them about Thievery and to use it as some tests. I bet it would be way better than Medal Of Honour.

                WOW! Now that is a finding.
                Anyway and now that I am thinking about the implications of it and I do believe its true cause most people in here drive like if they were playing driver, gta or midtown madness.

                About Thievery I think its a bit like thief, it forces you to be patient (or a vent-hunter, depending on your tactics), it forces you to work with people you dont know at start (eventually you get to know them). Either way it forces you to take actions or facing an horrible death. Life is not very much diferent from that.

                    My father saw me play GTA Vice City and he said he would never let me his car again. Driving on the wrond side of the street was OK, having a lotta crashes was OK, stealing cars - OK, but i drove thought a large group of people and it wasnt OK.
                    I hope ha was just kidding too!

                          Haha. No, I usually skim slashdot. I've never posted there, but I occasionally read comments on an article that interests me.
