5 Lessons Games Teach (That Are Better Than Self Help Books)

"Have you ever been to the self help section of your local book store? There is no better place to go if you hate science, quantitative data, empirical research or real qualifications. If you are a big fan of “Doctors” with correspondence degrees, poorly researched psychological theories or wishful thinking, then self help may be for you! Sure, self help doesn't work, but it can certainly make you feel warm and comfy in your own self delusion of uniqueness, and imminent (but illusionary) success.

Or you could dump the self help books, pull yourself together and learn some real life lessons. From videogames!" says CalmDownTom (Culture)
