It's Not the Video Games: Let's Play More, Blame Less

Date TBA

This talk will give the TL;DR of why blaming video games, instead of playing them, has made the world worse. For the last 50 years we have been blaming video games for nearly all of society’s problems: obesity, violence, loneliness, the list goes on. But here's the thing: video games are not only not responsible for any of these problems, they are actually the best tools we have to combat them. It's time to embrace the power of video games as tools for mental wellness and learn how to use games as powerful tools that can help us thrive as a creative society.
