YouSpeak: Fun and Video Games
Gaming reigns supreme
With the video game “Modern Warfare 3” making over a three-quarters of a billion dollars in its first five days of release and “Minecraft” claiming over 241 million log-ins a month, it’s clear that games aren’t the playthings just of children. Teens and adults are also fragging out to big sequel releases like “Battlefield 3,” “Saint’s Row 3,” “Uncharted 3,” “The Elderscrolls V: Skyrim,” and many others released just in time for the holidays. Reuters reports that video games are now a $65 billion industry. With games on devices from your computer to your phone, this week’s “YouSpeak” asks, “What are you playing?”
“YouSpeak” typically appears each Monday.
