    lol This is the Lounge afterall. It's technically as risky as the REAL stock market, especially if you spend rl cash in games. Now go out there and spend $5 = make $1,000,000!

    The day online money can be converted to real money in the same amount, the economy will burn up in seconds. It sounds like such a cool idea to gamers, but when everyone's making $40,000,000,000 a month, the dollar will be toilet paper.

    Wait. What the heck are you talking about? Could you atleast play a 3D MMO game, and not some 2D game with 99% 9yr olds.

    It could develop creativity. It's fun. People are bored. People need break from work/school. It's possible to learn something sometimes.
    It's fun.

    I agree with this. I used to play MMORPGs when I was younger, and I feel like it helped me develop a sense of how to manage money, as recklessly spending money in the game would result in a slower income and terrible skills.

    Hell yeah you do. I used to play Habbo Hotel back in the day when I was like 13-14. From furni shops (character run businesses) to trading furni (trading currencies), I learned more about economics than I did in university.

    Haha while I know you jest it's important to remember that on games like Tibia, WoW, Eve, and Second Life people run real businesses selling game items etc.

    Back in highschool I saved up for University by selling gold in games where I had a high-level on a bot collecting the items. This was before everything was over run with Chinese farmers, but there are still ways to make a living on game economies.

    Well, I used Habbo Hotel at the same age. However, I was pretty rich ( Used to be a hacker back then ) so, it actually taught me how to spend money carelessly. And how chicks love money, a lot :D ..

    The game I really loved was Runescape. Gr8 Game with great Market system :)

    Dude my first website I made was related to Habbo "scripts", remember WPE Pro and Scriptox? Lol I used to bind those with some "other files", thats how I got rich in that game, so did everyone else that was rich. I was ballin that hotel with rare casinos and everything. +rep for nostalgia

    But the point is you can learn alot from virtual markets
