The question is, does it work? Or is it a risk, given that even in this day and age, avid gaming unfortunately still comes with a stigma of laziness and immaturity? The general feeling seems to be that while the skills acquired by certain types of gaming are real, it might be problematic to actually include them on your resume. If you’re working at a hip start-up, it might give you a coolness factor that could make you stand out, in addition to the skills you proclaim it’s helped you develop. But when applying for more traditional jobs, it’s a pretty big gamble that HR hiring personnel are going to be gamers themselves, and respect all the time you’ve invested in a virtual world.
