Lol by now I should already be a genius with an iq that far surpasses Einstein's if this is true.

Probably can boost brain volume. Some games have you memorizing input notations, recognizing patterns, complex problem solving, and abstract math.

In short, Dota 2 makes you smarter. <o/

Have you ever noticed that every time a topic comes up on intelligence, everyone suddenly has a 160 IQ?

I always knew some games were good for me. I notice good first person shooters with engaging gameplay results in my focusing on detail more than detail. Since I usually focus on details anyway, I appreciate the increased attentiveness.
