people usually say games cant teach you stuff, but I think some of them can! i haven't played very many but the ones i have played have definitely made my reaction time better! what have you learned from games? ／(･ × ･)＼
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from playing video games over the years, it would have to be, let your imagination run wild! Imagination and creativity can change the world, and people, in so many ways, from scientists making inventions, to game developers creating stories and games that people will love for generations. Don’t be afraid to make new ideas, create stories, and think outside the box, as maybe you could change someone, a community, or the world one day~ ^.=.^
My focus and reaction time is better, I can process things quickly, can spot details that other may not be able to see.. mainly learned that from games like Undertale (the boss fights and the easter eggs), FNaF, and COD. Also learned creativity, survival skills (both from Minecraft & some other things), time management, and handling money (Sims). Also learned a whole other slew of things like animal behavior, how it is in the wild, what to be careful of, patience as well as efficiency, etc. from various games, some mentioned here already.
Guitar Hero taught me a lot about rhythm and being able to do different tasks simultaneously with each hand. Most games have assisted with my hand-eye coordination, reaction time (though a lot of that came from sports as a teenager), managing resources, and navigation. I spent a lot of my childhood exploring media as opposed to socializing, and it gave me a somewhat naïve worldview, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's also made me more socially aware as I looked up to a lot of game protagonists as a child. I'm actually content being the player two in real life, too - so long as my player one is noble, passionate, and determined.
