Anyone else here feel that video game skill and athleticism are linked? I played middle linebacker in college and through my experience people who were superior gamers were also somewhat athletic (not necessarily an athlete).. Thoughts?

I've found most gamers to be handsome, charismatic studs who are constantly bedding women. Maybe there is some correlation between videogames and raw sexual magnetism?

Seriously, it's one thing to mention how a surprisingly large number of gamers you've met are in great physical condition, it's admirable that you want to dispel the stereotype, empower your fellow gamers, instill some pride. But to suggest there is some kind of correlation between gaming skill and athleticism? This I find silly.

No because I absolutely suck at sports, and I only mildly suck at games.

What about things like coordination? Increased development of fast twitch muscle fibers?!

Just because you suck at sports doesn't necessarily mean you're not athletic!
