But with the video game culture also comes the tech culture and a slew of advances that make your life more convenient.
I agree. The medical experiments of the Nazi's paved the way for much of our advances in medicine. No, I'm not saying video games=evil genocidal frickbags. . .just an analogy of negative things helping progress society in other ways.
Tech advances are great, but we are slowly becoming a less physically capable country. We still have great athletes but they usually fall into 2 categories:
-Grow up poor, less access to video games, play outside more
-Parents have tracked the kid after determining aptitude, heavily limited VG use.
