Why Young Men Would Rather Play Video Games Than Get A Job

Hmmm, let's see...given the choice, you can work your ass off all day or you can lounge around the house on the sofa and play video games. Boy that's a real tough choice right there. It's a mystery to me why any young guy would rather play video games than work. roll eyes (sarcastic)

This is Danny Izquierdo, "a 22-year-old who lives with his parents in Silver Spring, Md.", as the Chicago Tribune reports (their photo, too). Izquierdo, the Tribune writes, is part of a trend: Young men who are opting out of the job market because it’s more emotionally fulfilling to play video games. It’s not that they couldn’t find a job. It’s that they don’t want to. Games are a better mode of living.
