Game Dream 9: Positive Reinforcement

Doc asks this week:

What is the most positive thing you have gained from your gaming experiences? How have games helped you with personal growth? How do you feel about your children (if any, now or in the future) eventually playing role playing games?

I’m with Ginger mainly on this one…
Amber, too for that matter…

Personal Growth is something I’m not good at and I am not good in defining.
But I can point to the people I’ve met and become friends with thanks to my gaming. Bridgette, Arref, Deb, Jim, Ginger, Amber, Liz and others too many to count.
I’ve friends on three continents and several disparate timezones. I would never have gone to California, and I wouldn’t be in Minnesota now if it wasn’t for gaming.
