This is a very cool article i found when going reading over CSNation's news articles:
Counter-Strike is Good for youThis just in: Counter-Strike is good for you! In a very interesting article, the BBC announces that gaming has more to it than just senseless killing. . It seems that a professor in Chicago has blown all of his grant money on a high-speed Alienware computer and thoroughly "researched" the Counter-Strike community. Here's my favorite line:
"It was often obvious when teenage boys were playing, he said, because there was much more trashtalk and sexist or homophobic insults flying around."
Now maybe my girlfriend will understand why I always brush her off for a nice big game of Counter-Strike. By the way, I was joking about the Alienware thing, he probably blew the grant on something else and used a computer in the library. So if you spend countless hours playing Counter-Strike, click here to feel vindicated.
