While many claim to have it, or understand it, or study it, it is notoriously difficult to define what the "hacker mindset" is. As a former "ethical hacker" I have my own working definition, which I will illustrate through my experience of spending far too much time playing the Ubisoft video game Watch_Dogs. While the game was all about hacking, an understanding of the creative way that hackers think was noticeably absent from the game's design and development. This absence was highlighted in the way that a few players were able to gain a disproportionate advantage against other gamers, and against the game itself, using their "Hacker Mindset".
