Gamer Thinking - Gamers think differently. They understand that if there is a situation in which they are placed in a game, there is most likely a solution. As a result, they are constantly seeking solutions. If there is not a solution, more than likely they recognize it because the game developer is in the habit of tossing in dead-ends. When they come across that situation again, they take a different approach because they recognize the inevitable outcome. When many are looking left and right, they are searching the ceiling and wall seams. When something works they use it. When there's something that looks better, they test it. If it's not, they discard it, because there are only so many slots in the inventory. If it proves to be better, they add it to their toolbox and make it routine.
