Video games inoculate against nightmares. Thoughts?

According to this study, high frequecny gamers have less nightmares than low frequency gamers.

They say it's because gamers are exposed to violence (which is not true), but I think it's because we are used to actively participating in a suspended states of reality.
Another notch on video games.

  • I dunno but I've been gaming since forever and I have played very violent games. The frequency of my nightmares went from frequent, to rare to now nonexistent. I may have had like on or two last year but that's about it.

  • It's not that "gamers" (how I hate that word) aren't exposed to violence - most major games these days are violent. It's just that most people are stable enough to not be affected by it.
