@GOOD Asks: Can Playing Games Teach Us Valuable Life Lessons? The Community Answers

by Hillary Newman

February 15, 2011

Yesterday on GOOD, Twitter, and Facebook, we asked our friends: Can playing games teach us valuable life lessons? The question was inspired by a recent Colbert Report interview with Jane McGonigal about her book Reality is Broken: Why Games Make us Better and How They Can Change the World. We didn't get as many responses as we were hoping for. Maybe everyone was too busy gaming.

We ask a question to our Twitter and Facebook faithful once a day, so if you’re not yet following @GOOD or a fan, make sure to sign up and participate in the conversation.

Here's a sampling of responses from our Twitter followers:






And here is what our Facebook buddies had to say:
