    Ok, so basically we can flip this and say "using GPS map apps makes you dumber vs using paper maps makes you smarter"??? I'm all for science, but tend not to put to much weight in single studies with small sample sizes and unduplicatable results

    Everyone all said that cartoons or even TV rots your brain.  Surprisingly, my brain is rotten.

    Essentially: The cure is to not just play games and simply go outside once in awhile? What wonders of modern medicine will they think of next? It's just crazy.


    Seems my hippocampus doesn't work. Whichever direction I'm facing is North in my brain. If something happened even as recently as yesterday, there's a good chance I don't remember it. My approach/avoidance conflict doesn't seem to work right. Games can't make it any worse, but if there's a chance it'll get better, I'll just keep gaming, then.
