Editorial: Beware the Child-Man?

“Kay Hymowitz recently stated on NPR that 20-30 year-old men should stop playing video games and become productive members of society. Why can’t we do both, and what makes games the problem?”
First of all, I look at this differently because I’m a 21-year old gamer. Also, there’s the matter of being a University of Mississippi student, an aspiring IT Consultant, and the Los behind LosEvolution. So, I can say I have done both for the past 4 years, and I have been a gamer for roughly 15 years strong. I don’t see an end in sight to it. Videogaming is too deep into my being, as it consumes a great portion of it. Not saying that I do not prioritize my life, but a guy’s gotta have fun somehow.

As for the other parts like marriage and kids, no way am I ready. I’m not even done with college yet, which will take me another year.

So I live my life in the way I want to live it: a gamer, a student, an employee, a friend, a significant other, and most importantly, a child of God.
