FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Internet Commenters Should Play This New Empathy-Building App

Posted on Wednesday, June 25 @ 11:30:00 Eastern by


Peppy Pals might not seem like the kind of game for users on core-leaning video game forums and blogs, but the message could make a huge difference in the way we communicate with each other.

While developer EQIDZ made the game with children ages 2-6 in mind, this point-and-click adventure game will help build emotional intelligence which the Internet seems sorely lacking in. Are you there, trolls? It's me, Daniel. Please play this game and then come back to comment.

Things have certainly improved over the past five years as more vocal and abrasive individuals discover they can be ignored on the Internet just as easily as they were in grade school, but there's no harm in trying to further our mission to eradicate trolls from the likes of GameRevolution comments and forums.

If you need further proof that the app can help build understanding and patience when dealing with disagreements, take SVT's Gomorron Sverige's word. The Swedish national television morning show says "It actually works!"
