Next time the wife bugs me about playing video games I'm just going to say I'm sharpening my eyesight!

Re: Action video games sharpen eyesight: U.S. study

I read somewhere when you are playing a first shooter on-line game your brain is basically in 5th gear. I try not to play before going to bed becasue right afterwards my mind is flying and I can't sleep. It is like trying to throw a car into reverse on the highway, at least for me.

I always need a half hour to unwind before going to bed at night after playing some Call of Duty. Otherwise I just lay there with my mind racing. Your mind definitely goes into OT when playing games.

What does wandering around a post-nuclear DC in Fallout 3 and then realizing 8 hours have gone by do for your brain? Because I feel like I've had a lobotomy.

Will playing Need for Speed enable me to out-run cops?

I'm pretty sure playing HAWX and Ace Combat qualify me to fly Predators...

Only if you go through the radar checks doing atleast 140 mph after running through a gas station and a water tower. I think driving on the golf course should enable me to hit more fairways.

I know I sure as hell could run a NFL franchise after playing countless hours of Madden over the years.

If that's the case, then I guess that they will be inducting my brother into the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame sometime soon. What with all of the Guitar Hero and Rock Band he plays.

The sad thing is that he is really a musician who can actually play drums and guitar, yet he wastes his time with those 2 games.

It's all good, because Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 is making me the best Golfer in the world...I'm such a hypocrite.
