The newest Comic will most likely not be up until Thursday morning. Possibly Wednesday evening, but no promises.
Tyler, a friend of mine, sent me this news story. Mrs. McGonigal is saying that reality is broken, and video games can be used to address real world problems. They can be used to teach and measure empathy and morality. Ok, so this made me laugh, and wonder if she has ever played video games where the moral choices weren’t predestined. If she has ever played CoD on XboX live, or Tf2 on Steam. Or stood and just read any general chat on any MMO for longer than 1.5 minutes.
Don’t get me wrong. I would love to live in a utopia that used video games to solve the world’s problems. What if, video games were used to treat mental illness, mediate divorce proceedings, settle disputes, and of course determine the outcome of war.
This lead me to another possibility.
