Dear listeners, this episode is all about videogames; it’s related to the episode 2 of this channel and also with the next Chatcast, which is going to be recorded next Sunday. Here I’ll give you some information about videogames, and I’ll try to respond these questions: Is playing videogames good or bad for your health? What’s the relation between videogames and films, TV series and books? What does it mean to be a gamer? Which game can I recommend you to play and actually learn something?

Here’s some articles that affirm playing action videogames actually improves your vision:

Video games as a tool to train visual skills

Playing Shooters and Driving Videogames improves top-down guidance in visual search

Cheers!
