According to an extensive study of gamers by social sciences firm LifeCourse Associates, those who regularly play video and computer games are more social, optimistic, and are closer to their families than non-gamers.
I might say that the internet has evolved us for the greater good lol >:D That being said, I'm not surprised by this survey though. Gaming as a medium has come a long way and by acknowledging it one can understand why the old stereotypes can be thrown out the window now.
I believe that gaming itself plays a part in that. I feel that growing up playing games actually made me smarter.
As with any statistic found online, take this one with a grain of salt.
considering how many people get sucked into CoD, i'm suspicious of this "study."
Tell that to my parents -.-
But are the biggest crybabies!
I never knew how to tell time on a analog watch when i was younger, then back in the days of the sega dreamcast and played METROPOLIS STREET RACER, i was able to understand how the minute and hour hand worked! plus learned a little bit about driving. You just never know what you'll learn by playing video games that'll help you in real-life. Proud to be a gamer! :-)
Not according to the morons I saw at Gamestop when I picked up Watch Dogs on my lunch break last week. It's pretty pathetic. I feel embarrassed going to the store in a button down shirt, slacks & tie because I get gawked at by the unemployed EMO crowd. They can't believe someone can actually game regularly and take care of real life obligations like family and work. Forget about going there on a Sunday afternoon, it's a freak show and it smells.
Judging by some posts in this site, no they're not.
