CNN.com has a story up about a recent study that finds that surgeons with gaming skills are better than surgeons without. A study performed at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, showed that surgeons that played at least three hours of games a week could preform laproscopic surgery (a form of surgery in which the doctor has to manipulate medical instruments through a tiny incision in a patient) with 37 percent fewer errors, and 27 percent faster than surgeons who couldn't tell the difference between Gordon Freeman and Morgan Freeman.

Of course, later in the article, CNN cautions against the dangers of video gaming, by pointing out that three of the surgeons tested were Nazis and that no fewer than six of them regularly drank the blood of their patients in a quest for immortality.
