What We Can Learn From Video Games

I believe there is real depth in the expanse of video game mythology, and that ideas and concepts we learn while playing video games can then be translated into the real world around us: into our professional lives, our parenting, and even our relationships.

I know this because I believe the concepts found in many video games are based on principals.

Principles are ideas that are timeless, and they remain true, independent of context; in many cases independent of culture or even an era.

Principles have value and transferability.

Unconscious Transferable Competence could be the key to unlocking the significant potential of video games to set individuals up for success in reality.

Can success in one environment lead to success in another?

If principles and transferable skills align, who is to say what the limit might be?
