Annotated Bibliography 4
The authors at the Associated Press suggest that gamers who play more action packed games like Grand Theft Auto 3 and Counter-Strike may have more sharpened minds. Researchers at the University of Rochester found that young adults who play those type of games showed a lot better visual skills than those who did not. When an experiment was done to prove this theory, the results showed that the people who play action packed video games could find the blinking light, colored letter, and could count the number of simultaneous objects better than those people who do not play video games. These findings suggest that video games could help treat visualy impaired people or even train people for combat. This article can compare to the article about how video games can be used for exercise. They are similar in that they both talk about how video games can benifit people physically, whether it be exercise or improved eyesight. This article supports my topic because it talks about how video games help people and make there visual skills better.
