Men and Video Games

Listen, I love video games as much as the next guy, but I’m a 40 year old voice actor and producer who travels all over the country. I genuinely don’t have time to play games. So this made me wonder. Does; grown man + video games= unsuccessful? Seriously, if I put a lot off time into playing it would take away from the time I spend making money. I’d like to see a study about men who spend hours a day playing and what their median income is.

Then my question would be; Could you take someone who puts a lot of time and effort into being great at any one video game, and transfer that same energy into being successful in some other way that pays a high income? Or better yet, can someone with an intense love of video games figure out a way to make money with that passion?

I think this is something younger men have to truly ponder. We’ve become a digital society, and more time is spent playing video games than ever. This could be a problem. Unless the younger generations translate this into income, we could be looking at the most unsuccessful generations in our history.

My game, when I find time to play, is Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
