Video Game Science!!!

Have you ever wondered about the science of Video Games?! Well I will provide my masters degree level knowledge on how Video Games affect us!

1. Did you know? Video games can become an addiction
 Studies have shown that hardcore gamers are addicted! Games like Grand Theft Auto are so interactive and interesting that they stimulate the same parts of the brain that get people hooked on drugs. Yes, the rush of running that guy over is just like the real thing but you're not going to jail!

I'm willing to look the other way if Eroges are legalized in the USA. ^.^


2. Did you know? Video games can cure people
Studies have shown that people who have had surgery feel much less pain and recover faster when they play video games. Fast paced games that make people think are the panacea. Games like tetris and DDR (obviously using the controller) can get people's minds off their own problems, even so much that that serious pain doesn't feel so bad... Video games even shorten recovery times for people who play them. Now the only problem is sneaking that DS past the nurse O.o






3. Did you know? Video games can make you smarter
I know I put the picture for need for speed up but that is only one type of game that can improve reaction time, hand-eye coordination, and increase working memory. That's right scientist's have found that memory and coordination increase when playing fast paced games. Any game like Need for Speed, Smash bro's, GTA, or tetris can increase those things...

Yes, video games will improve your reaction time in a real driver's seat. Now you just have to stop being nervious *.*

So next time your momma wants you to stop playing the video games... scroll past number one and show her the data I've found for you!!! Remember scroll past number one O_O

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers



This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
