PostSubject: Gamers are the most intelligent people ever   Thu May 08, 2008 3:26 pm

Why? Because every time I go out to play some miniature game (not video game) the group I am with starts talking about some big philsophical, or social-economical thing. There is more talked about but those two are off the top of my head.

And listening to all of this mumbo-jumbo makes me think that gamers are the only true intelligent people in this world. There may be more, yes, but I have yet to find them or talk about some big key issue of the world of today with them. So kudos to all gamers out there, and keep the ideas coming Idea

I think one of the big factors is that gamers are typically people who can and like to think abstractly. This makes games and strategy more fun, and also allows for thoughtful debate on complicated issues.

Nathan you're a little young yet, but depending on where you end up going to college, this can be an environment where you will also find groups who like to debate such issues.

Just be glad that you have conversations like that. My gaming group is lagging a bit behind at times. I should possibly not allow couples?
