The Story About White Dove: A Fairy Tale About Freedom

This is a story about white dove who is born in the late autumn. His parents can't choose him a name and call him just White Dove. He grows up very fast and learns how to fly. During the first flight dove sees the big and beautiful city. He likes to fly very much, he wants to see more and to fly around the world. However, his parents say him…

Throughout the years, I've never had any trouble dominating whatever title I've popped into a console system. But what about real life? I'm not quite so great at that. I’ve often wondered how much easier life would be if I had a controller and a set of extra lives to guide me through it. Eventually, this led to an epiphany: video games have taught me everything I need to know about succeeding in life. In fact, they’ve taught me everything I need to know about EVERYTHING. My extensive history with video games has prepared me for nearly every situation, from how to arrange blocks to how to save the universe. I just had to search my 8-bit soul and figure out what each game was trying to prepare me for in the real world.
