I learned this week that 92 percent of two-year-olds play video games. Not surprisingly, 99 percent of boys and 94 percent of girls under the age of 18 play them. When typical Americans reach 21 years of age, they have spent 10,000 hours "gaming." By comparison, a person with perfect attendance in middle school and high school would have attended class for 10,084 hours. What does the gaming phenomenon mean for our culture and our future?
