Could playing video games be linked to success at college?

June 7, 2017

Parents often worry about the amount of time their kids spend playing video games, but, playing certain types of games can actually make kids smarter, according to a new study. University of Glasgow researchers found students who played eight video games, including Borderlands 2, Minecraft and Lara Croft for 14 hours over an eight-week period, showed improvements in communication, adaptability, and resourcefulness, compared to a group that didn't play any video games. Study leader, Matt Barr, explains that modern video games often encourage critical thinking and reflective learning, which are "desireable attributes in graduates."
