Gaming / Games Make You Smarter

According to a blockbuster presentation at the American Psychological Association convention in Boston recently, it turns out video games can actually make you smarter, reported by Boston Herald.

The details are as below:

    Researchers detailed a series of studies showing that today's gamers could well be tomorrow's surgeons. Their surprising conclusions included:

    The popular multiplayer online game "World of Warcraft" can improve scientific thinking.

    Laparoscopic surgeons who play video games are 27 percent faster at advanced surgical procedures and made 37 percent fewer errors than non-gamers.

    "There are some very compelling cases that video-game playing leads to advanced problem-solving in math, science, and spatial skills," said Fordham University psychologist Fran C. Blumberg. "I do think it has benefits."

    The study of surgeons was conducted by Iowa State University psychologist Dr. Douglas Gentile; Dr. Paul Lynch, associate professor of anestheology at the Mayo Clinic; and other researchers.

    "I noticed that, invariably, the doctors who played video games were better at surgery," Lynch said.

    Gentile and Lynch argue that video games are producing a generation of more adept surgeons. And here's the good news: The rest of the game-playing world is reaping benefits too.

    With 92 percent of kids playing some sort of video game, Gentile says it's become a "natural learning tool" for younger audiences.

PC / Jumping [My Game :D]
« on: June 01, 2008, 10:58:33 PM »
So. I decided to make a game awhile back. I love doing platformers, so that's exactly what I did. Another platformer. I basically just used to game for learning, and I did learn a lot [Mainly how to draw cubes..] Anyways. The game was made in Game Maker 7 Pro.

Objective of the game: To reach the "win" blocks. Now, just for tips, do the tutorial. Just do it. Do it when it's done downloading. You might get confused if you don't. o.O.

So. Here's some controls on how to play..

WASD - Move
Mouse - Look around
Spacebar - Jump
Q - Unlock the mouse
ESC - Exit
Arrow Keys to navigate the menu [First screen]
F1 - Help

Alright..Screenshots..

The First Level



The Fourth Level


So yeah. Here's the download link..

-- Clicky

Any comments & crit are welcome.

PC / Question..
« on: May 03, 2008, 01:24:57 PM »
Alright. This is a bit puzzling me, though I'm not really minding it. [Heh].

I was playing Counter Strike: Source. I turned on the net graph, allowing me to see my fps. Now, I'm on medium graphics, and I get an average of about 60 fps. So, I turned it to the max, to see what I'd get.

When it changed, I got an average of about 150fps. Why is this? Shouldn't turning up the graphics reduce it..By..Alot?
