    I wasn't really showing off. I wanted to talk about it. I got into gaming because of my son 2yrs ago. It is fascinating. I didn't really know the enormous effort and money a it takes to make a game, the sophistication of the gaming engine, and the huge profits of the industry. When I played the Blades and Sorcery game, it seemed disturbing at first, but then the uncanny valley kicks in and I can clearly see the NPCs are not human-like at all. (The are called NPCs, non-playable characters). I gotten into this so much, I even know some popular voice actors and the characters they have done. If you want to know the secret. A game is a movie. You are the director and actor. You design the character (I didn't show you that part, but I made mine a female moor). You control the character actions. The constraints are the plot and the setting. You choose from a preset bunch. In this particular game, it is to feel like John Wick. To show you how it works: I play the PC game Skyrim. When an NPC tells me what a great job I did defeating the eye of magnus, and he is putting me in charge of the Mage college, it is kind of embarrassing, but it actually feels pretty good.

    Skyrim costs $50. It sold 22 million copies. Revenue was 1.4 billion. Profit was 160 million.

    7.6 billion people in the world and 2.2 billion are gamers, so one third.
