  2. I think I saw something about how surgeons who play video games are better at surgery than those who don’t. But that may be wishful thinking.

  3. Don’t get me wrong, guys. As a life-long gamer I want to believe the hype as much as the next guy. Hell, I’d like to think the countless hours I put in on Skyrim, alone, would have granted me some sort of honorary PhD status by now.

    And I believe the laparoscopic surgery thing. But let’s be honest. I’m not a surgeon and most likely you aren’t either. No offense. I’m sure you have a great life doing whatever you do. But I think it’s safe to say that for the vast majority of us, the so-called skills we gain from video games never really seem to make a difference.

    Then again, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe one day I’ll hear someone cry out “Dear God, is there a doctor in the house?! Or at the very least someone who has logged in a ridiculous amount of time playing Call of Duty!??”

    And then it’ll be Brian’s time to shine…

  4. Well, I am a doctor, and was a surgeon. I trained at an institute where we were REQUIRED to play video games to improve our hand-eye coordination. One of the attendings did research on the subject.
