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.

Basically what she is saying is that she wants us to get off our lazy arses and work instead of playing games all day.

Can we get swords, power/magic, the girl, money, kill people/things and still be the hero?

"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.

You facerolling Ret cunts don't know anything about actually working for decent gear when it's basically handed to you.

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.

User avatar #51 to #43 - quotes (08/10/2014) [-]
the point would be to work towards finding ways to make it work that way
sure its not easy and it would never be perfect but iv seen a few ideas that would make real things more like videogames

shes spreading an idea of what we should do but yea imagine doesnt mean we are doing it now

Ahh so our attempts to save the earth would break down into in fighting and calling each other faggots. GG no re

tedx has really become reddit tier garbage. they let any random theory that will result in instant click bait to pass through.    
   
here's an example:

this guy teaches you how to wipe your hands with a paper towel, being at most a mild discovery. but the way he presents it makes people thing its "le sooo revolutionary XD"

Wait what the **** that's glorious. Made me feel retarded for not thinking of single sheeting that ************ .
User avatar #89 - malhaloc (08/10/2014) [-]
I don't think this woman knows the demographic that she's speaking about. Basically she's saying that if you give a gamer a real world task to complete, they'll enjoy doing it because they enjoy doing tasks in games. And if its more than a one man job we're good about asking people for help and forming effective groups.

Gamers don't care about doing real world tasks. That's why we spend all our time in a virtual world. By trying to get everyone to be hardcore gamer's like she's talking about that would ruin any work ethic there is left in the world.

I don't think it works like that. The effort required to click a mouse and build a building in minecraft isn't the same amount of effort required to build a building in real life. People enjoy games because it's fun and it's relatively easy and straightforward compared to the other things that we need to do in life. Surgeons don't get to try again when they **** up like they do in Surgeon Simulator, nor is it as easy as a click of a button to become a surgeon in the first place.

Apply the brain power you use to launch a log at a helicopter into real life and save the planet. Great. How does this work?
User avatar #86 - OsamaBinLadenz (08/10/2014) [-]
Real life: Quest added: Build schools in Africa
In game: Quest added: Go kill a ******* dragon or some ****

This is why that'll never happen.
