Study: Action Video Games Improve Eyesight, But Not Memory

A recent study indicates that playing action video games can be good for your eyesight. Unfortunately, playing those games won't improve your memory. (Culture)

What an interesting, unique story! I can see why this would be, however, if you're after a superior memory then may I be the first to suggest Hitman: 2 on Professional difficulty? Each level has zero saves so everything has to be timed and executed to the second - the perfect memory test!

"All of this means that you can safely put anything in the Battlefield franchise on the same level with eating carrots "

Haha, brilliant!

I remember what to do in Legend of Zelda games after I play them once, sooo... does that improve memory? :P

...and 3 months ago there was a study that resulted in increased memory. Next month games study will result in decreased vision.

I'm still waiting on the study that says apples and water are bad for you.

Well at least we know for a fact that playing too many games does nothing for your biceps.

Boom! That just happened.

ha this is BS there are more test that prove the ocntrary and they are related to Action games as well, explain how can you memorize all of the guns, perks and best spots to use them in all the multiplayers maps, the best spots for camping, trolling, and paths you should take to reach your objectives also in all those maps and in BF3 the maps are huge not tiny spaces ;) so memory is there, all kind of gamers are better that non gamer people
