Who says too much gaming will dumb you down? These brain-bending experiences prove otherwise

More than just a pretty, red-eyed face

Bill O'Reilly says Mars has no moons... then where does Doom take place???
C'mon. Where does it take place? Where does it take place?

War. War never changes. Or Does it?

As Charlie Bearhat expounded in this week’s Top 7, certain games have a way of bringing out the best of your brain. After all, not everything is about high scoring, eye-fellating visuals, and massacring the competition. We’d like you to share the games that surprised you with the feeling of being a mental giant and/or somehow offered you the rare reward of subtly completing something you once might’ve perceived as beyond your capabilities. Any genre will do, lollipops! Let us know in the forums and we may read your response LIVE on TalkRadar 138!
