Today we got into another argument with Buzz about the popularity of online gaming and how people make bank doing it. Here's one of those people. In the words of Will Smith, parents just don't understand. Especially parents like Buzz. For the second day in a row, we got into a heated debate with Buzz about the popularity of online gaming and how more and more people are becoming involved in the esports community. Being old and a little bit of a fuddy duddy, Buzz really doesn't understand any of it. The popularity of video games, why people would want to spend hours playing them, or why people would want to watch others play them for so long. But the reality is, younger generations do. That's the reason the Disney Toy Collector is so popular. Kids will sit for hours to watch someone else unwrap and play with a toy, why would they want to go out and buy their own toy and do it? This mentality is exactly why Toys R Us is closing down. That, and we all want to find out where the toys are the cheapest and usually that is at some random website in China.
