If I Only Had A Brain Age

Posted on Monday, April 24 @ 18:41:32 Eastern by Ben_Silverman
Right after giving Nintendo's Brain Age nearly its lowest review score in North America, I started having doubts. I spoke to a few other editors about the game, all of whom agreed that it was better than my 'C' grade implied. They also "felt" themselves getting smarter the more they played it and loosely believed in the science behind the software.

Schmucks.

Today, blog site Joystiq reported on an article in the Wall Street Journal effectively debunking the whole "Brain Games Make You Smarter" theory, or at least the part that claims playing Brain Age will somehow lower your Brain Age. Be you brilliant doctor or ignorant hick, crossword fanatic or television addict, your brain is going to deteriorate over time. This explains why, despite often varied pasts, crazy old people all mumble the same incoherent hooey.

Since I'm not bright enough to read a newspaper that considers itself a journal, I haven't skimmed the article firsthand. But I'm inclined to agree with this new info since, after playing Brain Age for about a month, I'm still a goddamn idiot. It's just good to know that all this video game playing isn't making my brain shrink.
