The research is wrong becuase i never played black ops and i can multitask

Really? You're implying that what they're stating is something like: "You can only multitask if you play BlOps."?

When the original post seems to say otherwise:

Hardcore gamers have better visual acuity than non-gamers, improved attention and a better ability to multitask and to switch their focus between multiple tasks quickly.

It says that it can IMPROVE your ability to multitask and such.

Are you sure you read that properly?

It's pretty obvious he was being facetious.

I didn't find it obvious that that was a joke when it sounded like a biased statement
and in that case, it sounded like a poor joke. :[

Blacks Ops 1 is good for you. Black Ops 2 will make you grow brain tumours and cists.

Wrong way round man! Blopstwo is turning out much better than blops, I may even go out and buy this one(!) rather than the usual sponging off my mate's XBL.

Be the first CoD purchase I've made since 2007, so it must have something right...

I couldn't disagree more, I bought the game. The lag is worse than it was at the start of Black Ops 1, it was only properly fixed on Xbox 360, to this day my brother (who has PS3) still has lag problems and frame rate drops (from napalm strikes) when he plays black ops 1 and MW3 for that matter.

I traded Black Ops 2 in after three days of owning it (I put the money twoards Dishonoured). For me Black Ops 1 was the last good CoD game. MW3 is too fast paced and noob friendly, from a business stand point it's a great move but I no longer care for the series. I'm going to stick with Battlefield and Halo :)

I can tell when I was outplayed or if it was the game's fault I died. In Black Ops 2 I died mostly because of connection problems, spawn problems, weapon balancing problems (not so much weapon balancing problems though).

Oh...well...

I'll just stop playing games like Tetris, portal and Catherine. Clearly I've been doing it wrong. :l

Nah, I kid. Anyway, I can kind of see how it makes sense. Hardcore FPS gamers react in less than a second. They see something moving and can quickly identify if its a friend or a foe, if they should go for the kill or hide or if they should knife or shoot. It does require some skill, a skill that I wish I had so I could stop sucking at Blops 2.

Now, that doesn't mean that Blops will make you a fucking genius. yeah, it will probably do something good for you...but again, there's also games like Portal or even Tetris.

Also, personally, playing a FPS is easier than playing a puzzle games like the ones I mentioned. But that's just my opinion.
