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."
