Pew pew pew bad, cute cute cute good

Some of us have known this for ages, but it seems researchers at Montreal University have been able to demonstrate that shooters make you stupid, and cuteness makes you smart.

Further linking video game playing and response strategies, Kuhn & Gallinat [40] showed a negative correlation between playing certain types of action video games (e.g. Ego shooters with role-playing game design elements, such as Borderlands, Fallout 3 and Dead Island) and volume of the entorhinal cortex, a region highly interconnected with the hippocampus. Conversely, the study reported a positive correlation between time playing certain logic and puzzle video games (e.g. Tetris; Professor Layton) and platformer games (e.g. Super Mario 64) and volume of the entorhinal cortex.

Did you notice it only talked about brain size, not ability?
Shooters make the brain more efficient, requiring less of it.  The body naturally uses the proteins for other things, like building muscles  <Roy>

From the study:

Further, the study reported a positive correlation between time playing psuedo-cute action shooters like DK3 and the ability of the telepathinal cortex to remotely move inanimate objects (specifically Coca Cola cans) under laboratory conditions
