I've played loads of Animal Crossing New Leaf and I learned about SO many different types of bugs and fish from catching them in that game! ^-^

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~ ^.=.^ 🐉💡💻

Games can definitely teach a lot of things.

 

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.

Always look around corners before going around them

 

If it looks like a trap, it probably is

 

Expect the unexpected

 

always have a plan, a backup plan, and a backup backup plan

 

keep your eyes on all possible escape routes

 

Always good advice! ❤️

Always keep your calculator handy when you want to trade. 

 

Research everything. Your neighbors probably won't, so that will put you ahead. 

 

Failing/dying/respawning is half of the fun. Run back out there and do it again.

 

Watch the corners when you run though or your healer will get mad at you. 

 

It's good to have friends. But random strangers are unreliable. 

 

Take time to read the cutscene. 

 

Make sure you have the right tools for the job.

Agreed! Not enough people do research on things these days. 😕

Considering I'm going to school for a comp sci major I want to take into game design hopefully game design knowledge I can use going forward.

 

Though honestly I have a lot of narrative analysis stuff I could go into here. The two I think the biggest lesson I've taken away from a video game was from Trail of Cold Steel 1; (Minor Spoilers for Plot of Trail of Cold Steel 1) [iSPOILER]and the idea that you have to ground yourself somewhere. If you keep running from everything you will ultimately end up alone. This is mainly reflected through the struggles that protagonist Rean Schwarzer. [/iSPOILER]

 

My other biggest lesson thing goes to Ace Attorney and definitely improving my critical thinking skills through playing through the main series entries in that series.

I learnt quite a lot about history and culture from Civ V, Crusader Kings III, and Age of Mythology.

But as a reminder, you should always fact check your findings. Video games offer an interesting platform for knowledge but some concepts are purposefully altered to create an actual gameplay.
