Benefits of Roleplaying, Creative Thinking and “The What if Factor.”
What are the real world benefits to of roleplaying games?
Roleplaying is an excellent way to be creative and imagine “the what if factor.” Roleplaying games allow the player to think in different ways as if anything and were possible.
Roleplaying is also an excellent way to think out of the box when solving problems.
Fantasy roleplaying is my overall favorite form of roleplaying. Take the Vampire and Werewolf series it offers the players an exciting adventure through a multitude of worlds during the game. Fantasy role-playing online games such as Final Fantasy XIV and Everquest 2 have a substantial amount of creative thinking involved. While playing solo, you have to creatively play your character abilities and tactics best that you can during gameplay. Grouping and raiding allows you to show off your acquired skills, work with others, and strategically think about how you will support your team to the best of your ability.
So what can fantasy roleplaying games do for the work environment?
It seems that thinking out of the box is a rare concept in some workforces. Fantasy roleplaying games could expand and increase your ability to think out of the box, and differently, from those others you work with. Role players use more of their imagination and right brain than others who do not play. This also corresponds with artist, writers, and musicians who also use their right brain.
It makes me wonder why companies and organizations do not request creative thinking as a prerequisite. Just imagine what fantasy role-players could do for organizations and corporations in a think tank or brainstorming session.
Why not consider a role-playing game as a way to increase creativity and imagination.
