Weekend Debate: What have videogames taught you? (update)
UPDATE: Great work everyone – this week’s debate threw up some of the funniest responses ever and I very much enjoyed trawling through all your suggestions. Anyway, our judges have made their selections. The following commenters all get a digital copy of Bayonetta: toxic-inferno (post 4), fauxtronic (26), ghostgeet (117), dav2612 (126) and Lonehawk (157).
Congratulations! We’ll deliver your download code as a PM to your account on the official forums. Expect these to be sent out towards the end of the week.
ORIGINAL POST: If you’ve been keeping half an eye on the news this week, you may have noticed an interview with Prince Harry in which Great Britain’s third-in-line claimed that his love of PlayStation has helped him become a better helicopter pilot.
A perfect jumping-off point for a Weekend Debate, if ever there was one. Your topic for discussion today:
What transferable skills have video games taught you that you can implement in everyday life?
Me? Well, obviously I’ll be pretty well prepared when the inevitable undead apocalypse finally comes around, but in the here-and-now it’s a tougher question to answer. I do remember practising my three-point turns in Gran Turismo the night before my first driving test. I failed, of course, but that probably wasn’t GT’s fault…
