I’m a big fan of infographics, useless little nuggets of information spattered around an image are easier for me to digest than a lengthy wall of words.
And according to this latest infographic that could well be because playing Pac-Man apparently slows down brain activity. Granted they’ve put it in a way that makes it sound good because it reduces anxiety but I’m not sure slowing down my brain is as positive a side effect as they make it sound.
Some of the other things playing games helps with hand eye co-ordination and helping with strategic planning. So just a few more hours of Titanfall and I can confidently plan and place my fist through someone’s face… hmm maybe video games do make us violent after all.
Take a look and let me know if you believe any of the information on this infographic from LibertyGames
