MSU said that they used the Torrance Test of Creativity-Figural to assess the creativity of kids. The suite includes tasks such as drawing a picture from a curved shape, giving the picture a title and then writing a story about it.

probably not interaction with a gun! hahaha
[citation][nom]amk-aka-phantom[/nom]LOL, I'd SO fail that no matter how many games I play! Clear for me, though. Virtual reality where you are free to experiment! Isn't that kind of obvious? Experiment ground always promotes creativity[/citation]
I agree. That hasn't always been my forte, either. Unless I had to come up with a story that didn't have to make sense to entertain some kids, b/c then I could just say whatever random funny thing that came to mind.
No need to be a scientist to come to that conclusion, many games promote creative thinking by rewarding it but there have been a decline there lately since more and more company markets their games by cool edited videos and flashy screen shots rather than actual content!
