A paper concluding that FPS video games may make players better shooters in real life was retracted after irregularities were discovered with the data set.
Well duh. Never heard of anyone making headshots on the range thanks to Duck Hunt.
I only have a mouse so I suk at shooting
why would it?
seriously, you dont feel any recoil whatsoever from the controller.
WOW !!!! you don't say!! and i was hoping all those Mass Effect hours were enough for me to become a top tier astronaut !!!!
Well considering the Moon landings were done on a sound stage. You could be an astronaut.
Ah here we go with this moon landing talk.
Hahaha you're crazy.
I earth is flat
Wow. You're a special kind of stupid.
ii am only have mouse sometime like killing up myself
Ofcouse not. If anything, in the case of COD, They teach you to run out in the open and get shot as soon an possible. ;)
COD would also have you believe you can run around carrying a 30+ lb Browning as if it were a Nerf gun. I've held one and it's a beast of a gun, there is a very good reason why they have tripods.
No mouse or keyboard on the battlefield.
It doesnt? And I was really hoping to be next Olympic sharp shooting champion.
Only if your a military drone pilot. Then it feels like a game.
:-O REAAAAAAAAALLLYY!!!? but i very much improved my footballing skills playing Fifa!? so why would that not be possible playing CoD..!? :-O
duh, recoil ans triger discipline are alot different is real life.
Well, to be fair, today's shooters will train you better than Doom did back in the day.
Well, statistics do show that gamers have a much higher than average reaction time, hand-eye coordination, motor functions and ability to comprehend and react faster with things (like that FPS to Visual stimuli article that came up not long ago). So, we could claim otherwise with this. If you train a regular non-gamer with a gun, and you train a gamer at the same pace of the non-gamer with the gun? I'd want to see the combat statistics of accuracy/reload times.
While a gamer won't be inherently and magically become a gun expert thanks to a video game, the benefits of being a gamer will no doubt give gamers an edge vs non-gamers if given the right opportunity and training.
I've been a gamer for over 35 years and I shoot pistols in IPSC competition. I have found the only thing that makes you better at shooting guns, is shooting guns. You know, practicing. Like every sport.
Shooting a real gun is nothing like maneuvering a crosshair on a TV screen with a thumbstick.
Of course. You can't quickscope irl. If you can your one strong human being
fps games obviously wouldnt but the real question is would VR shooting gallarys make you better, id guess it does.
