More Bad News: Gamers Start to Suck After Age 24

Gaming-640x426If there is one thing I don’t need today it’s more bad news. In fact I don’t want any more bad news ever. If you’ve got bad news to give me I want you to make it sound good. In fact, just keep it to yourself, I don’t trust your acting abilities.

Scientists from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia published the study “Over the Hill at 24” last week in the journal PLOS ONE, in which they examined 3,305 StarCraft II players between the ages of 16 and 44. Though most people think that your fine motor skills or cognitive function don’t take a downhill turn until much later in life, the SFU team found that “age-related slowing of within-game, self-initiated response times begins at 24 years of age.”

Well, that sucks. Just when I thought I was going to be able to start my career as a pro gamer. Ha, that’s completely not true, I suck at every video game. What I could do though is be one of those play through commentators who yells the whole time. Especially when playing Mario Kart. That game is infuriating. HOW DID I JUST GET BLUE-SHELLED? I’M IN 6TH!
