Training the older brain in 3-D: Video game enhances cognitive control

Scientists at UC San Francisco are reporting that they have found a way to reverse some of the negative effects of aging on the brain, using a video game designed to improve cognitive control.

The findings, published this week in Nature, show how a specially designed 3-D video game can improve cognitive performance in healthy older adults.

Why Is No One Making AAA Horror Games Anymore?

Saif from eXputer inquires, "Despite the everlasting popularity of the genre, why hasn't there been a good AAA horror game in a while now?"

Jin_Sakai2d ago

Because the gaming industry is obsessed with live service games.

Cacabunga1d 13h ago

Even FPS are rare nowadays

Rynxie1d 12h ago

Because he touches himself at night to characters like lady Dimitrescu.

You're the one still thinking about her

@crow

Did I give away your secret? It's okay, if you sit on your hand and numb it, you can pretend it's her playing with your little stick.

MaximusPrime_2d ago

Good for me, I have no interests in horror games

Even when they do it's first person trying to copy Outlast, Five Nights, P.T etc

I think the Dead Space / RE2 / RE4 Remake and the Evil Within 2 showed you can have a good story based, third person survival horror game.

jeromeface1d 13h ago

remakes is another good reason

Calisto Protocol was also fun with fantastic presentation.

I feel like we haven't had much in the way of horror games for years, I think it became rare after the PS2/PS3 gen. Maybe i'll pick up that Crow Country that recently came out, that looks good.

Venoxn4g1d 2h ago

Crow Country needs some more love.. and more exposure

Redemption-641d 13h ago

Because outside of a fee games, most don't sell that well

Crows901d 8h ago

So in other words...AAA publishers don't have creativity or passion for games.

CrimsonWing691d 13h ago

Didn’t we have Dead Space Remake and Resident Evil 4 Remake last year?

thorstein1d 13h ago (Edited 1d 13h ago )

Among others

And isn't Dying Light 2 a horror game?

Scissorman1d 13h ago

And Alan Wake 2 and Alone in the Dark.

on_line_forever21h ago

I like Alone in the dark but it's not AAA game

richardmmorales1d 4h ago

We also had The Quarry and The Dark Pictures The Devil In Me.
