Chapter 7

Men Solve Problems; Video Games Solve Men

Men are wired to solve problems To men, they are a hammer, and every problem is a nail that must be whacked down. Women just want to talk about the nail and how they feel about it; men want to whack the nail. We don’t feel the need to constantly express our emotions or gossip with our fellow mates, we can watch a game of football or fix up a classic car in the garage without uttering a single word.

Video games do not serve a man’s purpose, and in that way, they are unmanly.
