EVE Online

Finally all of those countless hours of playing video games all weekend just might pay off. EVE Online is asking for players to contribute to real science. The rumored mini game Project Discovery is looking for gamers to help scientists while playing EVE Online. Just because you are playing an MMO doesn’t mean you can’t learn anything. And with this mini game, you can attempt to classify several proteins so that scientists can understand what roles that these proteins can play in the human body. Usually, any solution that you can find can help lead to results to possibly cure or lead to curing a disease. You can win in-game rewards for completing a task. Rewards like ISK currency and loyalty points all can be gained without paying for a subscription. So when people ask why do you play video games now, tell them you are saving the world by advancing medicine within a virtual cosmos.
