Spending your nights playing World of Warcraft won’t help your social life. But it will help your brain box. Scientists at the Office of Naval Research say that video games can help adults process information much faster and improve their abilities to reason and solve problems.

The ONR has no results, however, on how video game players score in terms of women.
