Research papers published yesterday seem to indicate that playing certain violent video games makes you a better person. If not socially, then at least in terms of ability.

?Players can process visual information more quickly and can track 30% more objects than non-players," said Dr Daphne Bavelier, associate professor of brain and cognitive sciences at University of Rochester in New York."Several game players even achieved perfect scores on tests barely do-able for non-players."

She went on to say that players would be better at driving and other key reaction-based skills.

It was not mentioned if players would become better at stabbing, bludgeoning and the like as a result of prolonged play.
