    Random UT Question

    Does playing UT build reflexes and hand-eye coordination in real life?

    #2
    Since your actively looking out for things, I'm sure it increases your spatial awareness and hand-eye co-ordination, yes.

    Doesn't mean you should then go on a real battlefield and try to deathmatch the other side...

        So that means I can play UT and build H-E coordination and reflexes for playing sports. Neat.

          LOL! yea, true, i rekon it could. i can tell you, if people grow form n00b to champion, and their aim improves, it has obviously helped coordination and reflex.

          thats why pc games are GOOD. console on the other hand only excercises your thumbs lol

              You couldn't be more right, personally any other game than a FPS are for noob, I know RTS are for pro too but... it's not sport. A FPS for me is some kind of sport, it kind of require reflexes and coordination like in true sport activities. So even though I pass for a moron there, FPS are king, other games are for newbs. Sorry it had to get out !

              UT is my favorite competetive game and never any game will change that I believe.

                Practicing any hand-eye coordination exercise will increase your hand-eye coordination in real life. Sure, UT is a game, but it's no exception. How else do people start out sucking and get better, yaknow? :-P

                    You obviously aren't very good at console games.

                    As for the actual question, it may improve your reflexes, but probably not enough for any purpose other than gaming, as it creates such small reactions. Hand eye coordination I wouldn't even consider. I highly highly doubt it. If you want to get your reflexes and hand eye coordination to be better for practical uses, get your friends to throw tennis balls at your face at random times during the day.

                      owned by your own attitude again.

                      no, i played console games for a square 5 years, and was pretty danmed good at them.

                      then i head of PC and left "console kid" behind.

                      you should do your reseach on who you are trying to own before you have a half - @$$ed attempt. now back to the initial question:

                      its been scientifically proven that PC games improve reflexes in real life

                        All video games increase your visual awareness. Not spacial awareness. For real spacial awareness try a Rubik's cube

                          Action Video Games Sharpen Vision 20 Percent

                          Video games that contain high levels of action, such as Unreal Tournament, can actually improve your vision.

                          ..At the outset, the students were given a crowding test, which measured how well they could discern the orientation of a "T" within a crowd of other distracting symbols—a sort of electronic eye chart. Students were then divided into two groups. The experimental group played Unreal Tournament, a first-person shoot-'em-up action game, for roughly an hour a day. The control group played Tetris, a game equally demanding in terms of motor control, but visually less complex.

                          After about a month of near-daily gaming, the Tetris players showed no improvement on the test, but the Unreal Tournament players could tell which way the "T" was pointing much more easily than they had just a month earlier.

                          "When people play action games, they're changing the brain's pathway responsible for visual processing," says Bavelier. "These games push the human visual system to the limits and the brain adapts to it. That learning carries over into other activities and possibly everyday life."

                              Google can provide answers to anything.

                              It seems pretty obvious that exercising a skill improves it. I certainly find my real-life circle-strafing and hammer-jumping skills improve a lot after playing UT.
