Save the world!

So, today, I was at a conference
and I saw something I need to share
with you guys, because it rocks:
This woman is a video game designer
and she has an awesome theory
My goal, for the next decade is to make it as
easy to save the world in real lite as it is in online games
At the moment, we spend 3 billion
hours on average playing online games
According to my research, I believe that if we want to
survive the next century on this planet, we need to
increase that number to
Why is that? Well, she believes that us,
gamers, have rel incredible talents.
But more importantly, we have spent
a lot of time developing these talents.
Solar, we' spent
5. 93 million years
playing
The average person today, in a strong
gamer culture, will have spent:
lit,
10, 000 hours gaming

For children in the USA, is the exact
amount of time you will spent in school from tth grade
to highschool graduation if you have perfect attendance.
I guess you see why it is such a big
deal by now. But what do we learn?
Well, this is when the rel talents come
into play (if I might say):
Blissful
Basically, what she is saying is that
we are very productive when given
epic goals (saving the world by killing
dragons, for example), we always
believe we can do it and we are very
good at forming teams to achieve "
Now, imagine if you could be in real
life as you are in a game such as Wow.
This is what she is trying to create and
I think it needs to be known about.

I play games to escape the boredom and the ******** life throws at me. Not to fix it.

*****					 this is a theory.   
   
Meaning she has no clue how to apply this to real life situations, which is the actual hard part. This is literally like saying "Hey, imagine if all the hours we put into wow would help the world."   
   
"Imagine" being the key word.

good at forming teams...bitch you ever played mmos?




one mistake no matter how small and the team falls apart.
#8 to #7 - drickz (08/09/2014) [-]
Then you have a bad team with an even worse leadership.

Usually, with a good team, great social capability, good leadership, and epic loot, things will go down sooner or later.

I don't know about you   
...but I'm not exactly sold   
mostly because I still have no idea what the plan is   
...is she saying more people should play video games because it causes people to develop productive traits?   
or...we should make solving world problems more epic so gamers feel driven to solve them?

I was college-searching in NC a couple weeks ago, and one of the professors there, who taught a videogame-design class, talked about "serious" games. Basically training simulations, educational games, stuff like that. Apparently there's a growing market for them.

Imagine creating a game a bit like Assassin's Creed where students in a history class can go through short campaigns from important moments in history while learning about those moments. I got a dream guys

Age of Empires 2 was kind of like that, barring the limitations of an old PC strategy game. All of the game's campaign modes were based off historical wars and conquests, including Joan of Arc's role in the hundred years war, the Mongol conquests, part of the crusades etc. While I wouldn't call it a completely accurate depiction of history (the narration in between missions was told from the perspective of someone who'd experienced it personally), it was an attempt to emulate historical battles. Frankly, that game taught me more about history than my social studies classes in high school.

"Be in real life like you are in WoW" She is going to make me a lvl top geared Paladin?
What the **** is this cunt on about?
I actually watched the entire video and it was all nonsense.
I think it's just a cash grab.
