Video Game Players Make Better Surgeons (Study)

Latest research found out that avid video gamers could be best suitable to be SURGEONS. I guess the skills dealing with zombies in Resident Evil and beating up King Kuppa are similar to the skills required to conduct high-risk surgery procedures. Those trained on video games build the coordination to perform surgeries with less errors and quicker than a normal surgeon could go.

However, this study doesn't prove to be that beneficial due to the social effects video games does to kids and teens specifically on their school performancs and poor health. Thus, still IMO, it is a breakthough as motivation for gamers to indulge their skills not on wielding Squall's gunblade but on practicing a career in bringing hope to patients needed to undergo stitches and surgical blades.
