    How we are gonna tackle this?

    Video games could affect the way kids do school work

    A lot of children received video games for Christmas, and what games your kids play could affect the way he or she approaches school work or other tasks.

    In a lab at Wheaton College, it may seem like fun and games, but in reality, playing popular video games is being done in the name of science.

    "What I'm showing here is more short-term effects, after you play a video game for an hour or so what happens immediately afterwards," researcher Rolf Nelson said.

    For his research, psychology professor Rolf Nelson recruited 40 students.

    Half played a fast-paced video game like Medal of Honor for an hour.

    "Just going around and avoiding getting killed, shoot as many people as you can," Nelson said.

    The other 20 students played the game Portal.

    "You can't just race though it, you have to step back a bit and understand what's going on in the game, and trying to move through it too fast is not the best way to go about it, so it pushes you in the direction of sort of stopping and taking a look at what you're doing," Nelson said.

    Before and after playing each type of video game, students performed a task that required both speed and accuracy.

    He found a difference in the groups after playing the fast-action video game.

    "Kids seemed to be a lot faster at tasks so they can do things faster, but they're a lot less accurate, and the reverse was true of the puzzle game," Nelson said. "So after the puzzle game, they are slower but much more accurate at what they're doing."



    Finally Nelson told,

    "If you're choosing games for your kids to play, don't have them play an action game just before doing their homework or just before taking a test, something where they have to sit down and actually think,"

    I don't think you play intense rounds of fastpaced ego shooters 30 minutes before a test, now do you :<
    It's about short term effects, so before homework or something.

    That's the way how it should be:loved3:. Looking so nerdy and sick doesn't make life more exiting.

    I would have failed in school, if i ever stopped playing GAMES

    The way you thinks is also OK, a perfect GAMER will always win in all tasks, including schools and other stuffs.

    NOt more killing is entertained i think, for small kids.
