Abstract:

This BBC Horizon program seeks to find out if the brains and behavior of an entire generation are being shaped by the hours they spend playing video games. The film explores how developers engineer their games to make sure they reach the sweet spot between frustration and boredom for the gamer, and Horizon looks at some of the scientific tests being carried out around the world to understand the impact of gaming on behavior, physiology, and neurobiology. Do gamers who play the most violent games show more violent behavior? Are gamers better at spatial navigation? And just how addictive are video games?
