Are you pac-man-ized?

“Computer games don't affect kids, I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids, we'd all run around in a darkened room munching pills and listening to repetitive music.” (Kristian Wilson, Nintendo, Inc., 1989)

Faut que je retrouve le nom de ce jeu...

Seeker of the mysterious arts, speak Mu Ahm, the mantra of Truth.
Seeker of honor and valor in battle, speak Summ Ra, the mantra of Courage.
Seeker of the mastery of practical skills, speak Om Cah, the mantra of Love.

Ouais, j'suis en train de faire du tri dans toutes mes paperasses informatiques, donc je retrouve des perles ;-)

Go dumb

"A Japanese researcher, Akio Mori, from the Nihon University's College of Humanities and Sciences, claims to have found a link between the playing of video games and the balance of activity in the brain. It is also claimed that this effect can cause behavioural changes, such as lack of concentration, difficulty with social association, and short temper. These effects are also thought to be, to some extent, nonreversible."

(On Slashdot: Video Games Found To Decrease Brain Activity, via TIg3rt Labs: A Quote from the scene.)

In fact, this is a bit strange, cos I have heard an opposite story about Quake some times ago.
