RPG Video Gaming & Postapocalyptic Training

Consider if we are ready for post apocalyptic survival?  Dealing with armies of zombies who want to borrow stuff and who walk really slow?  Are we prepared for the coming energy-pack crisis?  If your answers are no, then begin training with RPG video games immediately, but are those RPGs robust enough to train children for the coming age of mutant sewer demons and genetically enhanced softball teams? Critical questions to answer as we near the singularity.  

Consider The Onion Network's important roundtable on whether we are preparing the younger generation of RPG players with the skills they will need to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Will they be able tell the difference between tainted mutant meat and a medical stem pack.

Where does the Big VideoGame lobby stand on this pressing social issue? Can we stand by any longer when our children think it is OK to only get 50% completion rates on levels? Can we live in a world where the entire conversation tree is not fully realized and explored?

We owe it to ourselves, we owe it to our future mutant children and their deadbeat zombie friends.
