@GOOD Asks: Can Playing Games Teach Us Valuable Life Lessons? The Community Answers

Should we encourage younger generations to play more games in an effort to make our world a better place? Joint the conversation.

Yesterday on GOOD, Twitter, and Facebook, we asked our friends: Can playing games teach us valuable life lessons? The question was inspired by a recent Colbert Reportinterview with Jane McGonigal about her book Reality is Broken: Why Games Make us Better and How They Can Change the World. We didn't get as many responses as we were hoping for. Maybe everyone was too busy gaming.

We ask a question to our Twitter and Facebook faithful once a day, so if you’re not yet following @GOOD or a fan, make sure to sign up and participate in the conversation.

Here's a sampling of responses from our Twitter followers:
