“From the stories I get, if I could take a poll on the reasons freshmen and sophomores fail out of engineering classes, heavy gaming on Steam etc is probably 100% correlated.”

Back in the ‘70s my dad warned it was the campus pinball machines. While I enjoy online gaming, as a parent, I can’t say I’m excited about this, especially since the bulk of my daughter’s Christmas money went towards Valve games. I might consider confiscation, but she knows how to use her gun.

Yup. I dropped out of college because during breaks I would play pinball and win so many games I’d have to walk away from a machine with four or five games on it. I couldn’t do it.

And the rest is history. Well, actually in my early 30’s (1982) I took a silly Cobol course for $2,000 and ten months which led to a comfortable six figure career. :-)

College. Meh.
