BBC America – Video Games Responsible For Higher IQ’s
Jack Thompson is about to lose his license, E3 is not far off, and this summer looks to have some high quality games. So what could make things any better? How about finding out that playing video games can increase your IQ! I can hear you scoffing at me through your monitor, but according to the BBC show Newsnight that is just the case. Tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on BBC America they will run the story for the first time. Below is the teaser from their website.
An investigation into why children’s IQs are rising despite complaints from parents that their kids spend too much time playing video games and surfing the internet. This special report reveals that there’s some evidence to suggest that gaming is part of the reason why 21st century school children are apparently getting smarter.
I have not seen what info they have to back these claims up, so let’s just hope they have a bunch of smart people using big words during the show. I also hope their experts are British, because we all know a British accent makes you sound smarter.
