Default Playing Tetris after a traumatic event could significantly reduce emotional scars

This article specifically cites post-traumatic stress disorder and is only really applicable if the game is played soon after the trauma, but this is something to keep in mind if you or someone you know is in an abusive situation. In addition to helping them get out of the situation, get them an emergency Nintendo DS and Tetris to keep with them!

Playing the video game 'Tetris' could reduce trauma, claim Oxford University - Telegraph

thats really random...
and cant be generalised to everyone. these ppl were shown images... people handle images differently... some ppl can handle them better. im sure if the traumatic thing actually physically happened to them the outcome would b different again.
