I truly believe this is a great article. Myself, I have learned many historical, economic, tactical, survival, problem solving, and many more facts/strategies just alone from videogames. World of Warcraft actually taught me a lot about economics, how a market can fluctuate when something new comes out and how over time things can go up or down depending on supply/demand. It has helped me with personal marketing, such as using craigslist like the Auction House in World of Warcraft.
I have learned how to drive to the best of my ability through video games. I never shoot a gun but when it comes down to it, I can hit a target pretty good thanks for first person shooters. I have learned how to use strategy to defeat opponents, which could be used today within the military. I have learned a great deal about the World Wars that have taken place. I have seen what D-day would have been like. Thanks to video games, my typing has increased tremendously. Some video games teach you how to reason and think critically. For example, Fallout video games, everything you do effects your karma so you need to think if this is going to have a big effect on your life or not when making decisions. I would not be as even half as great of a person that I am if it was not for the video games that have taken part in my life. Thank you technology!
