Elon Musk says video games led to his success

Elon Musk says video games led to his success

Elon Musk, Founder of Paypal, Tesla, SpaceX, and 2nd richest man in the world, says one of the major factors that got him interested in tech and paved the way for him to start programming was the video games he played as a kid. At the age of 12, he had coded and published his first video game. He may currently be pulling all-nighters at Tesla but there was a time when he once worked at a gaming startup.

Problem-solving in video games transfers over to problem-solving in software engineering, If people had to try to create realistic graphics using very little computing power, they would have to write really tight code and come up with really clever ideas to do that.

He credited the video games Cyberpunk and the movie Blade Runner as the inspiration for the Tesla pickup truck. He has also announced the addition of video games to Tesla vehicles drivers can play games on the car’s center screen while docked at a charging station.

Oxford University says playing games makes you happy

Oxford University says playing games makes you happy

  • People playing more games reported greater “wellbeing”
  • All data collected through online games
  • Attitude towards game does affect mental health

A recent study from Oxford University has suggested that playing video games can be good for your mental health. The research found that people who played more games tended to report greater “wellbeing” in their everyday lives.

The study was done using actual play-time data, thanks to almost all of the games we play these days being online. Previous studies had tended to focus on self-reported time playing, which was only weakly correlated with reality.

An important concept to note is the attitude towards the game that you play could affect the mental impact it has. Play the game because it’s fun and you want to.
