Games are more than just fun.

When friends and family complain that we’re spending too much time gaming, we can now arm ourselves with a witty and intelligent retaliation rather thanks to online entrepreneur Jon Radoff. The Atari ST developer (among many other things), has written a lengthy but interesting article on his blog (via N4G) called six wonderful things about games. For the insult “playing games will rot your brain”, fire back with Radoff’s paragraph ‘games can make you smarter’. If a loved one states that we’re wasting our life, serve a bit of ‘games can excite people for high-paying careers’. But the real bombshell that can only silence avid critics from Radoff is ‘games could help end war’. Boom! From this day forth, we shall never be hassled again and can continue our hobby in peace.
