    No. They'll just be good players (or in many cases great potential programmers and developers). Now if they resorted to cheating to further enhance those talents, well that usually falls under the permaban category in my book.

      Brain scan can predict video game aptitude
      ...they can predict performance of a complex learning task – such as learning how to play a difficult video game
      Uh, so it doesn't predict how good you are then. It predicts how well you learn. Thanks, science journalism! You guys are the best.

        No kidding. That's a horribly misleading article.
