    Mr. Bushnell's comments

    Plenty to get stuck into there. I think the thing that leapt out at me most was:

    "It’s very clear that gameplay in general is really good for your brain. Good for brain health, good for deductive reasoning and, you know, kids today are really lots smarter. They don’t know as much as we did because they’re not learning as much. But they’re more analytical, and they’re better problem solvers."

    Probably because I agree with it for the most part. I find it interesting that Bushnell thinks kids know less nowadays even though knowledge and information is more easily accessible than ever. I guess he takes the view that with that accessibility comes the freedom, or inclination, to ignore that which does not interest or immediately grab you, or that which you do not think applies to your own life.

    I digress. What was he talking about? He called Halo 3 shit or something didn't he...? ;D
