How many times have you passed by someone playing a video game and you thought to yourself that they were just being lazy? Well t seems you do not know the whole truth. There are many good reasons why being a gamer is great.
We get the best tech, first
Games are often used to pioneer tech. The PS2, for example, was a cheap DVD player when that technology was just starting out. Ditto for PS3 and Blu-ray. While a game console’s primary purpose is to play games (insert ironic joke / bitter comment about how Xbox One is more concerned with adverts / data collection here), they often bring us incredible, innovative extras way ahead of the mass market.
