Short Description:
Geek journalist Ben Riggs will go over new evidence proving that gaming makes you happier, healthier, smarter, & wealthier!
Long Description:
Ever since they picked up their first video-game controller, geeks have been told that what they like is wrong, and that they are wrong for liking it. But new research in psychology, sociology, economics, and up-to-the-minute reports from the frontiers of the culture suggest just the opposite. Board games make you smarter. Playing video games literally makes your brain bigger. Video games are making their way into the classroom, and grade schoolers are using programming to solve mathematical equations. People who regularly play Dungeons & Dragons have been proven to be more successful later in life than those who don’t. Gamers are happier, and less stressed. As a result, they live longer. Geek culture can even add meaning to life. Role-playing games are personal mythologies, which help players make sense of our world by playing in one created in our own imagination.
