Well we have the benifit of usually developing an intuitive rapore with computers and have very fast mental reflexes. Studies show that all of us FPS lovers minds actually work as if it were real and it can help us keep our cool in stressful situations, also RTS players benefit from the analitical thinking development and strategy that people have been using board games to develop for thousands of years. I dont know any advantage for playing RPG games or MMOs i dont play them maybe there is some specific advantage *says dubiously not a fan of many RPGs or MMOs*.
Just ignore them, group together and form a clan thats what i did when i was at school [IV:XX] uber CS:S clan or any other game we pwn all (was another excuse to get together and have lan parties)
