Atlas Games is doing this thing called “Reverb Gamers 2012″, with 31 question prompts to kick off 2012. I’m going to post one up each day, including weekends, throughout January. I invite you to do the same! And check out @ReverbGamers on Twitter or Facebook.
REVERB GAMERS 2012, #30: What lessons have you taken from gaming that you can apply to your real life?
That’s a tough question. I have been gaming sine late high school. My friends, social life, and now business prospects all involve gaming. Narrowing it down to one set of lessons? I don’t think I can.
But rather than try to iterate many lessons, I’ll name just one. One I have mentioned before: we make our own win conditions.
Gaming & being a game designer over the years has taught me about the value, power, and limits of amateur psychology.
