Red Dead Redemption will improve your memory

Meet John Marston, a man aiming to blow away memories in the virtual world. According to the glowing review from The New York Times, Marston…

"stands between the Old West and modernity — between the celebration of the individual and the collective requirements of organized society — as he tries to salvage a family life from the smoldering legacy of his criminal past."

Millions will soon ride with Marston deep into the Wild West via Red Dead Redemption, the next big video game. And millions of virtual creatures, critters and humans alike, are going to die. Prepare for the band of anti-gamers who will deride it for stimulating aggression and turning the brain to mush.

Whether any of those complaints are valid is debatable. But according to several studies, Red Dead players will have the upper hand in certain kinds of memory.

You're partially right. The research is about all violent videogames, the author just decided to apply it to Red Dead Redemption for currency.

Did you read the article?

The actual testing didn't involve Red Dead. They did tests with numerous violent video games. The author just decided to apply it to RDR for currency.

The title should really say, "Violent Video Games will improve your memory". But I guess they didn't think that would get as many hits.
