The Guilt Of Video Game Millionaires

Guilt for becoming a millionaire off of something you created? Did any of you even know there was such a thing?

Markus Persson, who earned more than a hundred million dollars in 2012 from his game Minecraft, told me in 2013 that he also initially felt guilty about his newfound wealth and mostly limited his luxury to the latest computer. (He has now acclimatized somewhat, he says, and travels by private jet and hosts lavish parties for friends and fans.)
