The highest amount of negative G's allowed on a ride is 1.2 for 1 second. After that is may get a *little* uncomfortable   :fox-:P:
Coaster element of the forever :p

Skyrush's stengel dive! The most intense element I have ever experienced that combines unbelievable laterals with thigh crushing airtime. Insane is an understatement.

I mostly learned words, like 'artisan', 'kiosk' or 'regenerate'.

I don't play a LOT of games, but I absolutely love Undertale and one thing I learned from that game is that it is important to stay determined and to do your best to remain kind to everybody even if people aren't kind back.
Yeah I'm not much of a gamer so there isn't much else to say... xD

Lots of big words :3
And YES games, movies, shows, etc. also help me learn big/unusual words. :3

I've learned quite a bit of english from videogames, but other than that I don't think I've learned anything else from them.

I actually learned how to ice skate from nhl games. Can't skate with figure skates but I could skate amazingly with hockey skates, none of my friends could skate with hockey ones. It was so much fun. Too bad Florida doesn't have ice rinks around here or anywhere >.<

Mario Kart: If you ever find yourself on a flying road in space, you're gonna die a lot of times.
Undertale: If you have determination, you can accomplish the seemingly impossible.
Total War: Our men flee the field of battle! This is a shameful display!
Civilization: If you're building a really massive cool-looking building, and someone else builds the exact same building first, you have to blow yours up. That's the rules.

I think I got more creativity out of me playing Minecraft since early alpha than my entire time in art classes/design school.

Also, I thank the assassin's creed games for all 8 words I know in Italian.

Lots of patience and jokes... I swear man that Undertale humor. I've started making puns so much, it ain't even funny.

I've become patient and learned how to commence studies... I've no life-d Fallout so hard, I started to make a map on the location of every unique weapon, and also I did that with skyrim and Oblivion. I've even studied lore and stuff. With that in mind, I started to understand how to fit together pieces of information from everywhere.

Being patient and thinking ahead. Weather it be playing something Like Yugioh or Pokemon or Disgaea(Turned based combat) Or something as fast paced as Smite and Guild Wars2; I've learned how calculate things like Damage and defence and stuff. Hell it's probably due to Yugioh that I've gotten so good and adding and subtracting. Turn based combat makes you think ahead. Especially in Chess. I think it's because of me constantly playing Pokemon I've had a match with friends where they took out most of my pieces. But yet I've put them into a checkmate without them knowing.

And unfortunately now I can predict things in movies too well. (This is why I quit watching movies.) Once you know how a story is probably going to turn out you can start to say, "Que the enemy that's actually a person that wants to be the boss of his boss and rule the universe." or "Que the plot twist where this character A that acts like he hates the guts out of this character B turns out to be hiding that character B's secret to protect Character B." It got to the point where I can say, "Oh he's dead, oh no wait. That person is dead as well. No they're all going to die."  And I can point out things that will come back in the future. This sucks a lot. Ruins movies.;-;

      Games teach an important lesson to just anyone when they play them for the very first time. It teaches that you can't win every time. Sometimes in life, we think we're on top of the world. We start to think that we're untouchable and everyone else is unworthy. Games teach you that the world doesn't work that way. No one is perfect. Everyone is going to have a loss at some point in their life. No one is invincable no matter what they think. It's a difficult lesson to learn for a lot of people, but it's really a lesson in reality. That's how the real world is. A lot of people learn this lesson young when they're playing board games with their family and they keep it with them the rest of their lives. People seem to forget this important knowledge sometimes though. They start to think they're invulnerable to everything, but they're tore down again. It's a dissapointing but real lesson to be taught. Everyone will lose once in their life no matter who they are. It may not be in the game itself, but it will even happen outside of it.

History. My time spent playing games such as Europa Universalis and Hearts of Iron 3 have made me amazing at history. It's funny when you go to take a pretest in school but you ace it, so the teacher is like "why are you even here?".  :fox-:):

The most valuable thing that I have learned from them is probably mostly about the music. I may not be the best at creating my own music, but if it wasn't for video games, I probably would have anything to do with music in my life.
