Playing games is a very important part of everyone`s life. People almost spent all their time playing games while in their childhood. Not only do we enjoy it and have fun, but we also learn a lot of things from playing games. It`s obvious that playing games can also teach us about life. The reason goes as follows.
Among countless reasons, the first and the foremost one is that playing games teaches us about rules. No matter what kind of games we play, there must be a set of rules in it, and we have to obey those rules. No one is allowed to break those rules. That`s exactly what happens in real life. There are many sets of rules in our life too, from school regulations to laws. And people have to follow those rules, one who breaks the rules will get punished. So as we can see, playing games teaches us about rules and tells us to learn and obey them, which get us well-prepared for our lives in the future.

It`s no doubt that no one would go to stock market and put their money on risk without any preparation. So if you are one of those people who are new to stock market, I highly recommend you to try it out.

A good example would be RPG game, will gives people experience of adventure, and there are a lot more give people experience in different aspects. Generally speaking, Each computer game can teach us a part of our lives.
Finally, as we discussed above, I agree that playing games can teach us a lot things about life in different ways. And I believe there will be more and more good games produced that can give us a deep understanding of life.
