Op Ed

Jane McGonigal - What Gamers Can Teach Us. Thanks Acleacius.
The idea of gamer resilience isn't just an academic obsession for me. It's something I've experienced personally. I've had to fight off suicidal thoughts after a traumatic brain injury -- and I used my gamer strengths to do it.

I was explaining this to the TED audience -- that I'd reached my lowest point, when I said to myself: "I'm either going to kill myself, or I'm going to turn this into a game" -- when suddenly, everything in the theater went pitch black.

It was the strangest thing. A gasp went up in the audience. Just when I was finding the courage to discuss the darkest moment in my life, we were literally plunged into darkness together.
