According to an article over at
Gamasutra, Nintendo is adding some more marketing push to Brain Age: Train your Brain in Minutes a Day in the
form of Dr. Elizabeth Zelinski, dean and executive director of Leonard Davis School of
Gerontology at the University of Southern California. Her smarty-pants opinion on Brain Age:
"Nintendo's Brain Age should be just one element of an active lifestyle that includes mental stimulation, exercise and a good diet. Brain Age is a great way for people to keep challenging themselves."
That's right. You could train yourself on Brain Age for hours a day until you become a hyper-intelligent supergenius, but if you don't exercise and eat healthily, you'll become an obese hyper-intelligent supergenius. And as anyone will tell you, that's the worst kind.
