The research involves a number of respondents were divided into two groups, one of which is a group who regularly play FPS games at least 5 hours a week. And the other group had never played any games.
From the results of the study, a group that actively playing FPS games apparently have short-term memory is better than the other group.
In his research, Dr.. Lorenza Colzato as the leader of this research, explains that FPS games can train players to act quickly. This is considered a positive impact on his players.
“We think playing games can train your brain to be more flexible in monitoring the latest information, and can increase the memory capacity of gamers,” said Colzato, as quoted from GameSpot, Wednesday (30/04/2013).
