New Study Shows Violent Games Make Mornings Worse

Negative Gamer writes:

"The paper, published in Acta Paediatrica, used 19 boys aged between 12 and 15 and told them to play one violent, and one non-violent game for 2 hours before bed. Measurements of their heartbeat and movement were measured whilst they played, and during the following night of sleep."

NG have essentially a nice translation of the report from technical talk (though the link to the report is given) into stuff we can understand.

NG conclude:

"So there you have it, violent games clearly have a different impact on the gamer, but not on the quality of their sleep. Saying that, if you want to make getting out of bed easier on a Monday morning, don't play Manhunt."

The lesson learned is that if you want a good morning. Play LBP before you go to bed.

No what really makes mornings worse is waking up and finding out you've ran out of toilet paper and then going to Starbucks to find out they don't have any venti cups.
