Can D&D make you a better person?


This is awesome, and really hits on something I have felt for a long time. Sure, the stereotype of gamers is weird, out of touch, strange, unwashed, kind of socially backward, etc - you get the idea. But most that I have known (most, not all) rise above that. They become quite social. After all, gaming is basically a social activity - lots of human interaction, and a self organized hierarchical structure emerges in any game, or gaming group. Of course, they still do retain their own language, culture and mannerisms - but if they can project the social skills into other arenas of life, then (as the article suggests) the fact that they are gamers gives them a leg up. Now roll some dice....
