La cuestión de los juegos

Posted Mar 27 Oct 2015 - 18:49 | 2,361 views
El problema con los juegos es que su poder de absorción es muy difícil de explicar a los que no juegan. Y no estoy hablando de esos jueguitos de los centros comerciales que te ayudan a pasar el rato (aunque creo que el tiempo invertido frente a una pantalla es totalmente legítimo. ¡Larga vida a Candy Crushers!).

I’d bet my internet that one of your first experiences with the digital social had something to do with sex. Unsolicited nudity arriving in your inbox? Hundreds of sex-related IRC channels that popped up while you searched for your local radio chatroom? Pop-ups spiraling out of control on Internet Explorer? Or maybe you went looking for it in a Lycos search. Or maybe you built a geocities site...
