I wish I had a job coming up with this sort of thing. I reckon anybody who plays games already knew this, and without a Phd. I can now decide at least 50% faster in Metro Last Light whether to sneak up behind an enemy and cut their throat, or just shoot them :)

Wish I could've been a participant in the study. Playing vids all day? Sweet.
