There is a long-standing debate about whether or not gamers are smarter than the average person. Some people believe that playing video games improves cognitive skills, while others think that it has a negative effect. A new study published in the journal Intelligence suggests that there may be a correlation between IQ and gaming habits. Researchers studied over 3,000 participants and found that those who played more video games had higher IQ scores. The study also found that people who played action games had higher IQ scores than those who played strategy games. This is the first study to find a link between IQ and video gaming habits. The findings suggest that playing video games may improve cognitive skills. However, more research is needed to confirm this link.
