That’s just the start though. Look at how young people use their phones versus older generations. For many of us, it’s rude to take out your phone and start texting someone. However, what if it were a game? As in the above EVE article, can you imagine a world where you’re a guild that’s so famous that work would understand if you stayed home to defend your virtual territory?
