Thats right. If you play games alot you will be best suited to cutting out one of your family members hearts.

Out of 33 surgeons from Beth Israel Medical Center in New York that participated in the study, the nine doctors who had at some point played video games at least three hours per week made 37 percent fewer errors, performed 27 percent faster, and scored 42 percent better in the test of surgical skills than the 15 surgeons who had never played video games before.

Pretty much anything that improves dexterity might make for a technically better surgeon, I guess.

I remember playing Trauma Center DS E3 '05 and after the game surgically removed my gluteus maximus, I told the people waiting behind me (who noticed I sucked at the game) that "this is why I'm getting into the game industry" (instead of doing something prestigious like a surgeon).

Needless to say, they laughed at the joke. Unfortunately, I can no longer laugh with them. Apparently a career in video games just isn't for me, because I CAN'T WORK WITH FORCEPS!
