Ps I tried brain age type games on other products and they were not as effective for me, probably bcs with other devices there are too many distractors (how to play, setup, whatever) whereas I can play three brain age games in less than 2 minutes.
I have found another advantage of arcade type computer games. It helps you learn how to move your eyes and co-ordinate them with your hands without letting them fatigue.
I never score high, but this is also another advantage-learning to accept doing things much less well, as long as you do them at all. (not an easy task for an ambitious person).
