I didn't even know that this needed to be disproved.

I think this is a waste of time of everybody involved. Including the time I spent typing this post.

It's probably due to the fact that the majority of CoD players still need two hands to steer the car. It doesn't allow them to throw knives at other drivers across the road.

Interesting.

They should do some research on whether or not COD players are better at multitasking during dish-washing. Then compare variables to the driving research results, analyze the differences and provide a substantiated conclusion. I need to write my bachelor soon and I'm feeling lazy.

Makes me wonder, though... are FPS players better or worse at multitasking while driving than RTS players?

I've seen RTS players spend hours contemplating their next move, lol. That would certainly create some traffic jams if they drove like that! Smiley: lol

I think you're mistaking real-time strategy for turn-based strategy.

TBS: Hours of contemplating next move.
RTS: Mash them keys or the opponent will out-macro/-micro you!

Yep, you're right! I must have misplaced my brain for a moment. TBS = Games like Civ5. RTS = More like Age of Empires.
