Save all 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
by cage fl]
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):
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.

Then some faggot stands in fire, takes the healing off the tank, we wipe and quit.

"Get out of the fire! Get out of the fire! Get out of the fire! You died."
"Oh was I supposed to get out of the fire?"

It's been a long, long time since I thumbed up something.
You sir, deserve my thumb. Thank you for your comment.
And apologies, for terrible grammar.

When they add COD to the equation:

" **** YOU BITCH I RAPED YOUR MOTHER LAST NIGHT MOTHER ****** !!!"

I wrote it, read it, then posted. I posted for the sake of funny. Besides, it still doesn't make it right, nor would it give credit where due.

Saying it isn't OC doesn't negate the fact that OP is still lying. He said it isn't OC because it's not. someone else gave the speech and he just posted about it so it's not OC but he didn't see this live seeing as it is almost 3 years old. None of this really matters, I'm just saying.

This theory is great until you take in account that you can die in real life

while i admire this woman's ambition, she doesn't understand jack about real gamer's motivation and she isn't gonna achieve anything worthwhile.
#106 to #103 - addex (11/23/2012) [-]
^^This^^
#583 to #103 - jinkazama (11/23/2012) [-]
I'm a gamer and i had no problems with what she said. Though i guess it is more limited to RPG/MMO players in the more important points.
#128 to #103 - underaserpentsun (11/23/2012) [-]
P.S.: i kinda pity her. she's gonna try really hard, and get so far but in the end she's gonna burn out and end up an old and depressed cat lady. :(

The reason this doesn't work in life already is because for the most part reality sucks.   
   
Sure, everything considered, life is like a hardcore RPG.   
Stats are given by chance and while some are lucky most of us start at 0.   
You can improve your skills with days, weeks, months and efforts.   
   
It's entirely possible for the average joe to go from -2 in art to level 72, but it's painstaking   
And society today is so corrupt the economy is crap, so most of us flounder about just trying to make a living   
Many of us have dreams but the difficulty level is practically on Deity, Legendary or Master   
   
All this being said her vision is very possible however,    
to achieve it people need to be allowed to realistically be able to reach their dreams or goals   
   
Basically creating a better world, and better people, is the only way.   
   
So in the end it has nothing to do with video games, just some of the mentalities

mentalities learned from gaming, which can be learnt elsewhere i'll give you

might be you're looking at the big picture, these things are used in every day situations, can't tell you how many times i see people struck dumb at the slightest hiccup, when they should be doing something about it

Except it's highly unlikely that we'll act like we do on the internet/video games in real life because of the sense of anonymity.
User avatar #549 - luckybastard (11/23/2012) [-]
That way, we could call other people faggots and ******* in public
#497 - grimgrey (11/23/2012) [-]
That's a bad idea.

All that we're lacking is violence and bloodshed.
#474 to #463 - somberzeus (11/23/2012) [-]
......... With out meaning to sound like a ******** , were you being sarcastic ..
User avatar #479 to #474 - everheat ONLINE (11/23/2012) [-]
No I meant we won't be as productive in the real world if we dont have axes and guns and superpowers to kill everyone with.
#594 to #479 - somberzeus (11/23/2012) [-]
Ah fair enough that makes more sense because I was thinking isn't there like a war going all the time somewhere in the world
User avatar #272 - patrickmiller (11/23/2012) [-]
That's great until one kid gets mad and starts calling everyone a fag and saying he ****** their mothers.

So far the only thing video games has helped me do is find weird porn.

Would be nice, running around with swords and maces and axes and **** . Hell, we might actually have a solution for obesity here if everyone runs around wearing like 30 pounds of armor.
