I'm 37 years old and I'm the oldest cohort of people who grew up with games as a core type of entertainment in their lives.

Kids who are maybe five years old today are growing up with games as their principal form of entertainment and that multi-generational exposure has simply affected the way that we think.

Shakespeare famously wrote, "All the world is a stage." But if Shakespeare were alive today, wouldn't he have written, "All the world is a game."
