Don't you people know that playing those awful shoot-em-up games makes you prone to irrational, spontaneous outbursts of violence, often in public places with very large crowds?
As far as the ill-effects of gaming, I think it quite possible were one to exclusively play
first person death games for excessive hours every day for a long time (which is not so
unusual) they definitely have an effect. After playing Tribes for long hours, I would with
an ever so slight sidewinding down the sidewalk with an edgy paranoia looking for some
guy to be on top of a roof with a sniper gun. I knew it wasn't going to happen but your
senses become aware of these things when you go through such realistic simulations.

High school is an intensely cruel place, but a small group of friends can pull you through. (This is theory on my part, I mostly hid in books) It starts with recognizing a cruel remark as cruel, not hip.
That theory implies that kids should be much better drivers since they play driving simulations all the time. Or if the pilot eats the fish and gets sick, I guess I can land that 747 since I play a lot of Flight Simulator.

Can there be a better game than chess, ever?
in this case I guess that children could be considered "abnormal" adults...
