Research results: Gamers outperform non-gamers

Paula Faffles Sneijder Baetu, a student at Wits, doing her honors in Psychology extended an invitation to gamers and non-gamers to be part of her research on video games.

The aim of the research was:

1) To see if there is this relationship between video games and cognition.
2) To see if this relationship is different in two quite different genres (she used shooter and strategy).

We are happy to report that the results are in and it is (un)surprisingly in the favour of gamers. (Culture)

Heavy reading in that article, but the results do make sense. And "I told you so" :)
