Re: Mission Control
I've read of studies on drone pilots where they've found that this actually helps. Basically when the 5 minutes of intense activity happens you want people to be alert and fired up, a high arousal level is the technical term. If the preceding few hours have been spent staring at screens where nothing is happening it's very hard to snap into an aroused state quickly enough, whereas if you've been playing some sort of game you are at the very least likely to be awake. I believe a lot of work is being done on finding the right kind of games to allow for an effective transition from playing to working.
