I've played many games but not so often. However, I disagree with many aspects of this talk. For example, the attention and vision tests, the speaker showed that games actually increased these abilities. Well, it depends on what kind of attention and vision that we are talking about and the ones in this talk just one of them. My questions are: 1. Does she mean gamers are better in staying focus in solving a mathematics problem? 2. If you are working with computer 8 hours a day, and you come back home playing games for couple of hours, will your vision be improved? C'mon! Games are ways to entertain more or less the same as watching TV and surfing the Internet. The problem is that people are easily becoming addicted with games. The fact is, there are bad effects on psychology as well. For me it took time, money and energy and my mind couldn't get away from them. This talk is one of many examples showing that you should watch TED talks with a critical mind and don't believe everything they've said.

10:16 Well, yeah, we have to go do something for our moms and come back during an online game. Lol. No, but seriously, Fortnite players have to switch items, look for enemies, and keep track of the storm at the same time.

I play so much my veins pop in my eye
I actually think video games are a great way to get rid of the drive to say, race around like a madman. Especially with people like me with mild autism that are a danger to themselves and others. If I'm feeling mad then I'd go play Halo, when I'm in a dangerous mood I play Forza and drive around like a madman, so I'm satisfied and won't do it in real life!.

This is True.. i can confirm it. i am a gamer, more than 3 genre, action, strategy, turn-based, adventure, even kids game-house, type shark to brand new AAA game.. i can 'read' other riders on street so i can anticipate their movement. even i can place my vision to their position at the time on the same time while im driving.. maybe gamer's brain evolving? i don't know.. who know. edit : Fyi, im 28 y.o , i play a game since my 6 y.o start by playing aladin on my sister laptop, to mario bros nintendo, to mortal kombat and sonic on sega, to ps 1 - ps 3 and now i play on PC. im pc gamer now. i play DotA2. civ 6. etc

Video games over stimulate the mind and make hard things seem to be expected to be easier. They take deductive and inductive reasoning down a more strategic level but training the mind without the body is kind of lame and when faced with real experiances the players feel that reality is too stiff and much too hard to deal with leading to screen time adiction.
