This generation is filled with working adults who love to kick back and relax playing video games. Most young adults grew up playing mario bros, final fantasy, street fighter, etc. When i’m at work, I can always have an instant conversation with my bosses/peers about the latest games, shooters, etc. There’s an entire branch where I work that plays starcraft, and don’t get me started on WoW… So, i’ts not unheard of.
I think this is more of an American thing than anything else… When I went home to visit my family in Jamaica, most of the guys my age were busting their ass trying to make a dollar and viewed games as something for children… Not a good look playing games when people are busting their ass to make ends meet.
