For the first time in recent memory, a prime time news program aired a piece on video gaming that wasn't about the evils of our favorite form of entertainment. Instead, "60 Minutes" focused on professional video gamer Johnathan Wendel, aka "Fatal1ty", and the debate concerning video gaming being classified as a sport. It was quite refreshing to see a video gamer being interviewed who explained the importance of outside exercise to good gaming, as it ensures "your neurotransmitters are working properly". Also, despite the fact that I work in the video game industry, I'm still fascinated by massive LAN parties and the skills that people like Johnathan possess. Truly, it's amazing.
