Then something incredible happened: Subjects "improved by about 20 percent in their ability to identify letters presented in clutter — a visual acuity test similar to ones used in regular ophthalmology clinics." Or to put it another way, playing Halo could improve your performance on a standard eye chart. Interestingly, the effect only showed up in games like Unreal Tournament — not in games like Tetris."
