Life Lessons Learned From The University Of Gaming

Should the Mayan apocalypse have actually occurred today, gamers would have been more prepared than most; after all games may have taught us everything we need to know about surviving a nuclear, zombie or any other form of apocalypse that your imagination can think of.

If you actually stop and look closer, however, you might be surprised to see that they often offer lessons that are more immediately relevant to our lives.

It doesn't matter if you have just left school, university or even looking for that big job; you will feel like a little fish in a very big pond, and the golden rule to success requires practice and experience, or to put into gaming terms “levelling up”. (Culture, Dead Rising, Metal Gear, Ninja Gaiden, PS3, Tekken, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)
