Is Gaming Teachable?

Random encounters on public transportation. Love ’em or hate ’em, there’s no denying that they can sometimes lead to some interesting places, even gaming, as I recently discussed over on Virtual Bastion.


I’m not one for having random conversations on public transportation, but every now and then, a random human manages to briefly crack my self-imposed shell. And on rare occasions, the words that arise evoke something interesting.

One such occasion happened to me just a couple days ago. I was on the bus minding my own business and playing Persona 3 Portable when a random dude sat down next to me. As often happens, said random people usually have to situate themselves in their chosen seats, and while this random dude was doing so, he vigorously bumped into me, causing me to drop my tablet onto my lap. He gruffly but quickly apologized; I acknowledged and went back to my game. A few beats later, he suddenly piped up.

    • Aww, how awesome! I’m a generation removed from being “born with a game controller in-hand,” so I love hearing stories about how players of today are immediately passing down gaming to their kids. In that way, sure, gaming is something that can be taught. 🙂
