Expand your world! That’s what we all tell our kids, isn’t it? When they’re playing video games? But which of us is short on life experience when we played video games all day long in the 90s? I’m no apologist for that, of course. Video games, as all good things, should be enjoyed in moderation. Bl. Carlo Acutis, after all, limited himself to just 1 hour of the entertainment a week, though I personally think that’s much more restrictive than I would be with my kids. Nevertheless, video games can teach important lessons, build cooperation and team work, and now — strangely — even contribute to athleticism, between collegiate and professional e-sports teams and VR fitness apps. So, expand your world, indeed, but perhaps consider that the virtual may be a part of it, too.
