I played a lot of games during my life, but I grew up in a time when you were unable to make a living off the amazing e-Sports industry. When I was in high-school, eSports was in its infancy. I had to study to find a place in life as I got older. I I now have a career, but I still love watching CS:GO and Dota2. Valve is the most valuable private company in the world. They are the future of technology in the USA. Gaming at early ages highly correlates with increased intelligence and the ability to solve problems in adulthood. Unlike professional sports that breed athletes in the physical, gaming breeds athletes in the mental.
