This is a little lengthy but if you're a fellow FPS gamer...please read and reply: About a month ago, I read online a small study done about how individuals who played 10 hours a week...aka: very little time per week on violent FPS games (COD and BF type stuff) showed that their frontal lobes were being depleted of normal blood flow. After a week off them, normality resumed in their brain scans regarding blood flow to the frontal lobe. However, the doctor who did this study claimed it could cause relevant brain damage to those of us who have done giant gaming sessions. Well...I'm the guy who has spent 160+ hours the past few years on Bad Company 2 online...and now Battlefield 3. I can safely say I'm not mentally handicapped but was still intrigued to say the least...so I completely quit cold a month ago. So today I fired it up and decided to play for what was 30 minutes....a single death match game? And...I had a massive headache for a few hours afterwards. So I was just wondering if any gamers out there have ever experienced this or not? The part to the study that really grabbed my attention is the doctor said: "Many people who experience this blood flow limitation will experience greater mood swings, as in they'll get angrier easily and they will not be able to stay focused on a single task for very long. That was me in a nutshell recently....So I have been trying to get rid of those negative things about myself by trying out the no video game thing. No need to leave any silly comments about us gamers and our brains or something immature regarding the two. Please be serious.
