      First violence and now this, although I’d probably give this more more credence than the violence claim.

      I read an article in the Official Dreamcast Magazine about a girl who narrowly missed a serious accident after avoiding an oncoming car by quickly turning onto the wrong side of the road, a technique she’d picked up by playing video games.

      For some reason I thought of the Robot Chicken ep when I read that.

      We’ve also had surveys and research that report racing games can aid your driving ability and help you learn to drive quicker than the average student. I say both views are nonsense.

      A survey will also prove what it wants to prove.. but that’s a story for another day.

      I think Dave Perry got it right in the article – but contrary to what he said, that the paricularly imaginative gamer/driver will have their emotions affected by something they played an hour ago. And it would be the same for films, or a good gig, or whatever gets you going.

      I cycled home the first time I saw the matrix, and I was still speeding :P
