My friends find video games boring. My friends aren’t interested in adrenaline. In a world where we are all overwhelmed with constant shock and change, my friends are looking for relief. They are looking for video games about care and characters. But it’s not only for cultural reasons that my friends prefer care to shock. There’s also an underlying physiological reason why this is so. It has something to do with stress reactions – and this holds the key to the future of the industry.
