Video Games And Divorce

First-off, I’d like to freely admit that I can’t stand MMOs. I tried World of Warcraft once with a friend of mine (I had a 10-day trial key) and got so incredibly bored that I stopped playing before my 10 days were up. That being said, I recognize that some people (like the friend I tried it with) get real enjoyment out of video games. I recently came across this story on Kotaku that I thought I’d share with everyone to highlight incorrect stereotypes surrounding video games (especially MMOs).

Playing World of Warcraft helped this now-single mother and her son through a divorce and also helped mother and son understand each other better. This is one of the best uses for video games that I’ve seen in a long time!
