Grand Theft Auto 4
World of Warcraft
Were the parent of these students also studied? We suspect that the fatter, more violent children gamers also have parents that were less involved and more willing to let the kids play whatever games they wanted.
LMAF Thank you. Someone gets it.
With the generation of gamers we have I honestly think that its not too far off to have surgeries done with an xbox controller in a seperate room (for increased sterilization of course) or maybe using PS controllers to fly planes and such......
What do you guys think?

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Haha I did not mean that they'd use an actual controller for surgery...I meant that with ample dexterity and quick reaction times from video games our next gen doctors and pilots and such will probably use more remote control than manual.
I rememeber about 2 yrs or so ago that a company applied for a patient for a 3d holographics system that would allow surgoens to work cleanly. Since all the input was floating there would be nothing to touch and nothing to infect. It would allow the surgoens to have an aid for intense surgerys and greatly benefiting the patient. Seems like it was even mention on print in maximumpc
Well i must say that video games are really helpful for the kids and even the teenagers but if been used rightly and even more addiction to the kids may cause them some inferiority complexes among the other group of kids ,but seriousness i didn't know about the surgeons.

Care to explain?
Also.... what the crap man? This thread is 2 years old lol
Hey ..acarzt..what i mean by inferiority complex is that like many kids in our group had been neglected by other kids since they don't really spent time with the group,as they were busy playing V.games at home and everywhere they found,they are badly addicted to this..and hence they been called introvert or stereotyped by the other kids in our group,so...is this a good thing...?
and doesn't matter how old this post is..what important is how important this post is..~!
As an avid video gamer myself, I can attest that video gaming has not in any way ever made me feel like an outsider, or inferior to any extent.
If anything, video games were a source of bonding and connecting with other children.
I played plenty of single player games for MANY MANY hours, and I also enjoyed time playing co-op and multiple player games with friends.
Gaming is a more social medium than you think.
The kids who are experiencing said complex's likely have something else that is feeding this problem. Games are HUGE now and it's easy to point fingers, but let's not just jump to conclusions, let looks at all of the factors.
Said kid could have weight issues, or a social disorder to begin with. Something that is going to make him stand out from the crowd in a bad way.
There are kids with the same issues who do not play video games at all.
Sure... in extreme cases, as is with anything... An unhealthy addiction will cause problems for you in more ways than one. The types of games that tend to lead to these addictions are MMORPGs... see WoW. I can see how a heavy and unhealthy addiction could cause social failings, even tho it is a game you play with other people. The direct interaction is lacking and could cause social awkwardness and just not knowing how to deal with people in the real world.
But I would consider this an extreme situation and incredibly rare.
Too many people try to cast video games in a bad light. Can't we just focus on the good for once?
How awesome is it that video games are doing something good for the community? Helping children and sugeons and all :-)
