I’ve written several posts about the impact EQOA had on my life, long-term. One more I’d like to add is the lack of resilience and persistence to work hard. Video games, especially MMORPG’s are built around frequent, and instant, reward. You’re almost always moving toward an attainable goal. Real life is nothing like this and consequently I look around my work life wondering where the reward is. Yet the reward in a career in the real world is 30 or 40 years away.
