Lessons from computer games

Operation Flashpoint & Armed Assault:

  • In a serious gunfight, pretty much everybody dies.
  • Don't join the army: It's a dumb idea.

Total Annihilation:

  • There is no such thing as too much.
  • People set themselves up for failure by limiting the scope of their imagination.

Planetary Annihilation:
  • Attention is the most critical resource.
  • Play the person, not the game.
