Neuroscience Helps Develop Non-Violent Games With Same 'Bloody' Pleasure

Spilling blood and laying down corpses have always activated certain pleasure points in the brain, and gaming pub Edge has come up with a novel feature up about the consequence violence has on our brains- in a positive manner. A few researchers are attempting to employ MRI machines to chalk out accurate brain mappings, as MRIs can easily spot specific activities in particular areas of the brain.


If the type of stimulus that activates these portions could be figured out, and if these very stimulus can be used in other 'non-violent' games, researchers believe it will give out the same kick. But there are certain matters that need to be dealt with, like the high cost of MRI machines and the level of detail that the game developers require. Also the business and artistic issues involved with it. Though every game developer out there is sweating hard to make his particular game more enjoyable, it'd be pretty interesting to see how the concept of neuroscience shapes our future games- if at all they do.
