As an avid video gamer who is involved in strategic planning for my company, I approve.

This seems a ridiculous non-science experiment, in the sense that any activity that involves movement will increase the size of the region of the brain responsible for movement. I think what people want to know is, what sort of spatial orientation is being developed? At the opportunity cost what other sort of development that would happen if, say, the gamer was walking around instead of sitting? That kind of thing, which would be an actual question without an answer already built in.

I can't wait to show off my skills at throwing turtle shells at go carts.  That opportunity hasn't come up at work yet, though.

All I know is I played NHL on my Xbox last night and my player scored 5 points in the game final for the conference championship against Detroit.

I think I'm ready Chicago, call me up man

After 20 years of replaying Leisure Suit Larry, I'm almost ready to talk to a girl.

Almost.

The downside?  Some online video games increase twitch-rage reactions and - by default- bloodpressure through crap match-making, server lag/jumps and random nerfs via updates.

I played a game of that the other night. Then I remembered why I hadn't played for months.
