you must switch your shield color to the same color of energy bullets to absorb the energy. All the bullets are all over the screen, it's insanely crazy.

i was being dead ass serious
i will test it out for 10 weeks at 30-45 minutes 3 x a week

I think you are better off playing first person shooter

It's also make you differentiate moving objects better. So If you want to, you can play these games to stimulate your brain activities. However nothing beat real basketball experiences. Practicing and playing a lot of basketball will help you handle any game situation way better than those FPS or Asteroid.

Spend most of your time in gym, not in front of a TV.

no offense but i literally burst out with laughter when i read that...

 :uhhhfacepalm:

so sad..



but anyway, video games in general can help with decision making/reaction time, sure.. playing any type of video game that requires rapid decision making, reaction time, strategy, etc, can definitely help make you a bit more sharp, how much that transfers to your sport is up for debate.. just consider it a "brain stimulus", not something that will directly improve your basketball IQ/RT/decision making.
