Who knew video games rots you brains.Who knew you had more than one brain? See its not just some bone head at Fox who says this egotistical ignorant arrogant myth that video games cause what ever social ill at the moment.
Never mind studies that show other wise. " Research says video games can prove to be extremely conducive for boosting our critical thinking skills as well. According to Dr. Brian Glass, of the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London, “Previous research has demonstrated that action video games . . . can speed up decision making, but the current work finds that real-time strategy games can promote our ability to think on the fly and learn from past mistakes.” from http://www.gearfuse.com/video-games-can-help-improve-mental-skills/
Now that might be why they don't want you to have better critical thinking skills. Because if video games does help in that regard then you just might stop thinking these talking heads are experts on what they claim to be. Or that they have your best interest at heart. few years ago even in Entertainment weekly the question was asked "Video games vs. Movies: Have games replaced films as the modern popular narrative medium?" http://popwatch.ew.com/2011/08/18/movies-videogames-inception-red-dead-redemption/
Expect more of this as the summer season for movie under preforms.
