Critical Gamer Writes: Children who play video games have minds that are no more complex than those of chimpanzees. At least, that's what seems to be implied by the BBC and scientists at Emory University, Atlanta.
yes and as we all know that xbots are kids so they are all Little Monkeys
As soon as i saw the headline i knew some retard would associate it with x360 Cos nobody under the age of 20 owns a PS3 right??
made me lol. Which console only have FPS as their best selling games?
Lol, that is funny. What's even funnier is that the so called "older" PS3 fanboys (droids) on N4G act more like kids than these xbots they talk about. Allow me to break it down using your own logic. Xbots are kids so they are all Little Monkeys. Kids acting like kids right? Droids are adults acting like kids so they are pathetic. Thouhgts?
Mix of truth and exaggeration in that scientific study.
Why just video games? Why not television, books, toys...I see no reason that kids couldn't imitate those things.
he does mention TV.
the games were way simpler... besides a few.... i remember playing megaman with joy and full understanding cuz it was simple... now kids are trying to play games like msg4 which is way too much for them...1990 is where its at
hmmm lol, if you really want the whole aspect of entertainment and media harming people in the easiest of ways by putting things out there in plain sight why not check upon Illuminati... Wake Up People PLZ..... Wake Up...
Maybe Yawning is a bad example. When you see someone yawn, you feel like yawning yourself. Or you Yawn when watching the Zodiac and actually fall asleep in the theatre. Oh wait, that was me.
Omg the monkey has a gun.
Quick!, jump behind the counter! *gun shot* ahhhh! ...he shot me in my @ss.
FIRE AT WILL !!!
So im guessing this article is going towards the 360 right ?
What gives you that idea?
^^^ Ok. A lot of you seem to think that mostly kids own 360s and most PS3 owners are of the mature crowd so let's ride with that logic. Kids will be kids right? What does that make of the PS3 owners on N4G acting like kids over a console and games?
To an extent I agree in that when someone says somewthing funny in a TV show little kids decide that the best thing to do is to regurgitate that line every minute or so.
Couldn't agree with you more...
don't know or forgot to mention that chimps can be trained and taught and would be able to reach the level of an 8 year old in HUMAN intelligence. The article is rather moot...
I give the one commentor on the site props for the very funny Dolphin/Mentos comment. HA
Bots are very retarded monkies
Yep, and droids are very retarded bots. All in the same family.
Droids are higher lifeform than bots. Sorry.
@ Gabe It's opposite day so...
I call shenanigans!!!! This is Bull all these "scientists" and there study's are all bogus. they found this out by making monkeys yawn. they deserve an award or some thing for this such life changing discovery .this reminds me of a movie step brothers "We Put liquid paper on a bee... and it died".....EPIC FAIL!!!!
It's all about moderation. Playing video games are fun, and not evil. But if you spend too much time doing this instead of learning, just like watching too much TV or hanging out partying instead of going to school...you will be dumb as a stump.
