Growing up with three brothers, I've had my fair share of exposure to violent video games; however, new studies say that those games may have improved my cognitive ability. According to New York University, violent video games actually improve your vision, other brain functions and even better, attention! Too bad the same can't be said of my brothers...

This NYU study is one of many that show violent video games can be used as an educational tool and do have the ability to teach. I think showing violent video games in a positive light for kids is a fine line to tread, though.
