    (Eterna) Can we save the world.

    Imagine all those trials that we suffer through to unlock some random weapon in a game or those puzzles that we solve to proceed to that secret boss area or unlocking God mode through DLC now imagine we could achieve those things while doing something that actually mattered and I present to you this article.

    I think if the gaming community were willing to mesh the things they love with things that could help people we could do anything. It would be a lot harder for ignorant people to continue trying to ban video games because they feel that they cause violence when said games could be providing a benefit to people.



    Last is a link to one of the games discribed in the article.

    If the cost of keeping a thread on topic is a down vote then I will make that sacrifice.

    Basic and valid science, simply remove the medical overlay and present the problem as a pure exercise in pattern recognition and critical thinking, to a notoriously dedicated group of people. I'm not surprised it works.
