Video Game Nerds Reveal How Skill Points Would Work In Real Life

[rebelmouse-image 18361846 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

**Reddit asked all the gamers what was the most conducive way to utilize your skill points. This isn't a cavalier question. It requires acute precision and careful thought. What is the best way to win? Is it a combination of skill or an emphasis on one major ability? The possibilities are endless... apparently. **

DISCIPLINE. FOCUS. DETERMINATION.

Is discipline a skill? If so, +10 discipline. This would be such a huge quality of life improvement for me. It would help me get my weight under control, start working on things when I should, exercise properly, and so on and so on.

POISON IS LETHAL.

[rebelmouse-image 18361848 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd probably just panic and put them all in something useless like poison resistance.

WHEN IN DOUBT... BE A HARRY POTTER!

[rebelmouse-image 18361849 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 Sorcery

Even if that only gets me access to mage hand, I'm a Wizard!

GOOD LUCK AND GOD SPEED.

[rebelmouse-image 18361850 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Luck +10 will take care of everything.

BECAUSE I'M 60!!

[rebelmouse-image 18361851 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All ten to agility. I'm turning 60 this month.

BRAINS ARE THE KEY!

[rebelmouse-image 18980217 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 to intelligence. I'm dumb as HELL.

I've been repeatedly informed intelligence is not a skill. In that case I'll give +2 to street smarts and +5 to diplomacy and +3 to linguistics to know: Spanish, Mandarin, and french. Unless luck is an option then +10 luck.

BE STEALTHY.

[rebelmouse-image 18980218 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would spend all of them into sneak and archery.

USE YOUR WORDS.

[rebelmouse-image 18980219 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All to Charisma. You can talk your way out of so much, or into so much.

MAKE THE POINTS ADD UP.

[rebelmouse-image 18351101 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+8 CHARISMA

+1 INTELLIGENCE

+1 WISDOM

Only I'd do the wisdom first, to see if the rest still made sense.

USE ALL YOUR ASSETS.

[rebelmouse-image 18980220 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Definitely putting at least one skill point into Sexual tyrannosaurus.

DON'T DOUBT YOUR MUPPET POWER.

[rebelmouse-image 18980221 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 strength to counter my Muppet arms.

JUST KEEP SWIMMING!

[rebelmouse-image 18980222 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+5 to motivation and +5 to wisdom. My depression and angst keeps me in bed far too much and wisdom is invaluable.

IT'S ALL IN THE INGREDIENTS.

[rebelmouse-image 18980223 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+50 Happiness

+77 Luck

+42 Charisma

+108 Math skills

WHAT IF I... OR IF I... OR MAYBE...?? I DON'T KNOW!

[rebelmouse-image 18345004 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Knowing myself I would probably spend another 30 years pondering how to get the best value out of them. The irony.

WHAT I SAY GOES.

[rebelmouse-image 18980224 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd add 10 to my debate skills. Every time I'm in a heated debate, whether I'm winning or losing I get so frustrated I cry. Would be nice not to do that.

IT'S ALL IN THE ROMANCE.

[rebelmouse-image 18980225 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 confidence , so I can finally talk to girls.

BUST A MOVE Y'ALL!!

[rebelmouse-image 18980226 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

+10 in dancing skills.

I have this one friend and he did hip-hop/popping/waving etc. for 6/7 years (almost professionally and he's 20yo now) and it just brings so much joy to him and the people around him. Going out with him is the best time you can ever have. The attention he gathers, the happy face he always has on and the looks on the people faces around him are literally priceless. If I would have to describe/choose someone that is truly enjoying life then it's is definitely him!

TAKE IT THE MUSCLE YOU CAN GET!!

[rebelmouse-image 18980227 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All going to strength.

I'm not a weakling, but since I'm planning to learn a trade additional strength wouldn't hurt.

END. SCENE.

[rebelmouse-image 18980228 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The look of satisfaction turning into horror as he falls to the ground in agony.

DO YOU SPEAK THE LANGUAGE?

[rebelmouse-image 18980229 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Everyone here is listing ability scores.

The real answer is as many as I can into diplomacy, dump the rest into linguistics because each point is one whole language.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
