Random thoughts on gaming

October 27, 2006

I am still thinking about computer games (and more broadly, computer simulations). At lunch, Ivan remarked that his young nephew was quick to pick up WoW because he basically just got stuck into it and started playing. (I would have probably taken at least one look at the manual). Do playing computer games make you more willing to try out new things and less risk adverse? Now I am absolutely from the theory-first-practical-implications-later school of thought so I really wonder about the implications of gaming that go beyond mere entertainment.

Just do it?
