MMOs are a great training ground for this weird thing we call Life. Really. No, really. If you don't believe, you need to read our latest Fair Game column to find out how the games we play can teach us about Life and, just maybe, vice versa. Read on and then head to the comments.
Anyway, the idea this week is that I would love to see an MMO or two that teaches basic life skills, for example:
1. Finding a Job
Look, we have flight simulators to train pilots and patient simulators to train surgeons, but why not a simulator to train potential job seekers how to apply and interview for jobs? Sure, there are thousands of articles out there about what to do and what not to do, (most of them contradictory) but no bit of text is going to prepare you like simulation and role play. And just think of the PVP possibilities!
