A British doctor is advising athletes to avoid playing video games before their more athletic competition. Dr. Marco Cardinale, head of the British Olympic Association's Sports, Science and Research arm, recently made a speech about this.
What about WII SPORTS?
haha, I know about many soccer teams that play FIFA or PES the night before the match as a way to relax, a day before the match they don't do anything besides relaxing doing whatever they want (as long as it's allowed) like playing pool, bowling or yes, VG.
Sports? Pfft. That involves moving around and stuff.
Believe it or not, video games helps baseball players to get better in the sport. I know this from personal experience. As you guys know video games mostly require good hand/eye coordination, same thing with baseball. You get better coordination as you play video games more therefore you will get better coordination with hitting the baseball. I don't know if this applies to other people, but sure as hell it did work for me. You're looking at a person who played on varsity baseball and RARELY struck out(no brag). :D
Uh, Sonic The Hedgehog is the reason I love running so much! And that's 100% true!
Its a bit misleading. He's merely stating basic advice for athletes that may play video games. Things like moving across times zones, the night before activities, after being injured etc. and how these activities are affected by gaming. Most of it makes sense.
Don't know if it helps the other way around but from my experience, people who are good at sports are generally good at video games. I've always been naturally giften at pretty much all sports and that transfers over very well with games. However I think as someone mentioned... if I had a big sporting competition, i'd game as a way to unwind and relax.. from a psychological perspective VGs before sports is a great idea.
From one of my favorite movies of all time... suprisingly, a lot of my favorite movies have him and his brothers in it!
I wonder why the original story of this article hasn't been approved while it's pending since nearly 24 hours (and yes, if I noticed that it's because I submitted it).
