Playing two hours of video games a week makes you more employable, Glasgow academics find 

5 Jun

The small-scale study involved 36 undergraduates split into two different groups. The first was a control group while the second, with 16 students, were asked to play eight video games including Borderlands 2, Minecraft and Lara Croft, under controlled conditions, logging 14 hours of play in total over an eight-week period.

Both groups completed surveys before and after the experiment which measured different skills.

The findings showed that the group that played the games showed improvements on communication, adaptability and resourcefulness scales, compared to the control group.
