Florida State hits restart on video game research

An increasing number of studies have suggested video games–action video games, specifically–might actually be good for people. The thought was that mastery of these games could improve a variety of cognitive and perceptual abilities. But a new study out of Florida State University shows these results are not what they seem, and there are a lot more levels of study to conquer before we’ll really know if beating the game gives a boost to your brain.
