Video games are good for you

They’re social

Last night, I played Destiny for two hours with a French bloke living in Sweden, and a half Pole, half German person – both of whom I randomly teamed up with. We chatted about the usual stuff – nothing groundbreaking but it was just nice hanging around and relaxing while shooting up bad guys.

Throw in some real life mates (I have some, honest) and let the banter flow faster than the bullets. Just don’t insult anyone’s mother, OK?


As long as you’re sensible – meaning you shouldn’t let little Timmy play Super Sexy Zombie Killer XXXTREME 7 – videogames are a healthy, fun hobby with plenty of benefits.

Happy gaming.
