LessWrong gaming community

Many of us en­joy ex­press­ing our­selves through elec­tronic games. As such, I feel that this as­pect of our lives should be shared among our fel­low gamers in the LessWrong com­mu­nity.

Video games are a great way to re­duce com­part­men­tal­iza­tion and learn real-world ra­tio­nal­ity skills. In­deed, what brings us to­gether at LessWrong can of­ten be our love of games; some­one in the LessWrong com­mu­nity with­out this ad­van­tage might find learn­ing ra­tio­nal­ity difficult. In this light, out­reach into the tran­shu­man­ist/​ra­tio­nal­ist com­mu­nity to pro­mote gam­ing is low-hang­ing fruit for serv­ing the fu­ture of hu­man­ity.

Please con­sider this post a unique op­por­tu­nity to be­gin dis­cus­sion of this im­por­tant is­sue and fa­cil­i­tate fur­ther de­bate in the near fu­ture.
