New York Times Roasts 14 Year-Old for Being a Gamer

Over the weekend, the New York Times ran a front page article claiming children are becoming more addicted to playing video games during the pandemic, and suggesting that long-term gaming will make kids either drug addicts or incapable of dealing with adulthood.

These inane arguments aren't new, but it's a bummer for the 14 year-old kid who became the poster child for this article, getting roasted by the Times on their front page. An opening quote from his dad says, "I've failed you as a father."

But in a move showing how responsible and empathetic gamers actually are, the gaming community came together to stick up for the kid and possibly get him some free gaming equipment from Seamus Blackley, the inventor of the Xbox.

Way to clutch the W, boys.
