Video games are good for you!
FPSes and other visually complex games are good for your eyes, says this story on CNET. Thanks to the speed of the game and the number of things you have to keep track of, you push the part of your brain governing image processing to it's limits, and this exercise carries over into the other parts of your life. I don't think it will be a good enough excuse to get you out of eating your carrots.
"A study by the University of Rochester showed that people who played action video games for a few hours a day over the course
of a month improved their vision by about 20 percent.
"Action video game play changes the way our brains process visual information," Daphne Bavelier, professor of brain and
cognitive sciences, said in the study published on the university's Web site on Tuesday."
