Actually, its been shown that surgeons that play video games perform better in simulated surgery. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/02/070220012341.htm
As robotic surgery becomes more common, you can expect to see medical school incorporate some or of surgical video game in their training curriculum.

As far as grades are concerned, ones chances of getting into medical school with a C average is highly unlikely. The average GPA of medical school matriculants is 3.5+. In Ph.D. science programs, you get kicked out if your GPA drops below a 3.0. All my bases are covered.

I never had a lot of time because of the rigorous demands of my chosen field of study. I started playing FFXI during the summer of the PC release I quit maybe a year ago with my black mage at level 68 an practically none of the story line complete (Rank 5, barely half way through Zilart...). Looking forward to FF14 because it may be better for people like me who enjoyed 11 but simply didn't have the time to put in.

I remember seeing a news story about that, but thought that it wasnt with MMO's... thought it was with another type, cant remember if it was first person shooters or racing games...

Playing Aion?...ah,now I get your reasoning: No matter how good or bad XIV might end up, it'll still be a miracle in comparison, right? ;)

Could have made a worse mistake in life. Aion doesn't make a phone call and file a paternity suit 9 months after you left it.

Luckily I work 40 hrs a week so that helps pass the time. When I'm not working I'm playing Boarderlands w/ my girlfriend. When she has classes at the college I usually play Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires.

I've been getting in touch with a lot of my old LS mates (had a very close knit community), I'd like to reunite as many of us as possible for launch. Also trying to rebuild the old LS website and get it up to date for FF14 so we all have a place to keep in touch before launch.

Other than that, Starcraft II mostly. Playing other mmo's is just completely unappealing to me right now so I've been staying off them. Anyone else have recommendations for casual (somewhat addictive) online games to take up time?

There is a solemn sadness in my house.

My wife aimlessly wanders the corridors desperately pushing the creases out of her clothing and counting the seconds as they pass.

My two year old son plays every game of "chase" and every wrestle with his dad as if it was his last.

My three month old daughter desperately smiles and giggles to get her fathers attention knowing that the day is soon to arrive.

I am spending the next 41 days with my family. The said air to our house is due to the fact that they are aware of the impending release of FFXIV. I met my (now) wife a couple of months before FFXI came out - she knows the deal, the kids will learn :-)

I didn't read this whole thing just the OP and first page so if we are already off topic I apologize for getting back on topic with this post.


I was playing Aion for a bit but that got old. I've decided I wanted to get some things around the house done before the game comes out because god knows nothing is going to get done for at least 2-3 months after.

Most friends played ffXI and we will be playing XIV

The gf knows and loves her space so my ignoring her

I've gone back to playing DDO (Dungeon & Dragons Online) while I wait. I'd suggest it to anyone who is looking for a way to help pass the next month and a half. There is a free to play option and the lower levels have the most content, so its the almost perfect temporary diversion.

I only put in an hour or two a day, but I'm on the Argonessen server and would be happy to show some new peeps the ropes if there is interest.

Enjoy. Also, you may never look at a strawberry the same way again.


You owe me a new set of eyes. The ones I had are broken.



You owe me a two new monitors, three TVs, and five sets of eyes. This thing burned out every optical device in my house, and I only played it on one.


If I can get it out of you, you could also owe me a PC that will play XIV 1080p on max settings. If it helps I could click that link again.

Couldn't have been first person shooters. At least not of the horror genre. Turn a corner and jump to the ceiling because the "thing" popped up. Oops...

League of Legends is a fun diversion. Posting here, too. Minecraft as well. Might take up a game of Civ 3 to last me to Monday. 16 players on large/huge map can last a good 4-5 days easy.

Lurking through these forums, wishing I had a comp worthy of the Beta so I couldve used one of the keys my store got, and playing either FFVII, Deadspace, or CoDMW2. NHL 11 and Halo Reach will be added to that short list in the coming weeks as well.

Oh, and doing that whole work thing so I can actually get my comp by drop date.
