How video games affect attention spans
The few glimpses I have had of video games, courtesy of young relative, have left me with the impression that one needs a very agile mind, able to constantly react to developments in the game and make instant decisions.
Cognitive function enhancing video games? Hmmm
Do action video games make you smarter? Some research says, yes.
Why can’t states ban violent video sales?
The United States Supreme Court has no doubt upset many parents with its majority decision against a California law which would have banned the sale or rental of ultra-violent video games to children (under-18s).
Do video games cause depression in teens?
The debate about the effects of video gaming on young minds continues, fed by new studies that find links with depression.
Wondering what to buy Grandma for Christmas?
Why not the action video game Super Street Fighter IV? Just kidding. But
Wii Fit might be worth considering.
Protecting kids from video violence
Who knew that video games could be such a big deal? Currently the United
States Supreme Court is weighing arguments in favour of banning the
sale of graphically violent video games to minors, but the case is not
as straightforward as some of us might think.
