Video Games Gave Him the Chance to Prove He Is American

Kotaku: Video games aren't what kept José Muñoz in his parents' basement for much of the past seven years, slipping into depression. They aren't why the former honor roll student dropped out of college, and they aren't why he couldn't get a job. Video games aren't what sent him to a therapist's couch, and video games aren't what kept him on his living room's, day after day.

Video games, in fact, got José Muñoz off the couch. They gave him a chance, the kind most take for granted. (Culture)

No wonder so many people buy xbox live. People feel more American if they pay for a gaming service. Guilty conscience, check.
