When my Uber driver learned I was a game dev she turned around, thanked me, and explained her son had a condition that causes debilitating pain, but games help him distract himself from it a bit. It's good to be reminded of these kinds of stories every now and then.

I always seem to get people who say "Oh, huh. You know, I never thought about it before. But I guess a video game does need music, huh? And I guess someone has to write it. Good for you."

I'm working on a Microsoft project with Great Ormond Street called which aims to build games to help gamify boring (and sometimes painful) breathing exercises for children with . It's amazing work trying to distract kids and make them want to perform treatment.

one of my favorite dev experiences was working on a kind of throwaway game for kids undergoing chemo to take their minds off the pain they dealt with during treatment. So much more meaningful than working on random shooter #372. Love these stories.

This. This is what you can do. This is why creators matter. This is why I wake up in the morning.

Im part of this "autistic and mental awareness" geoup on fb, as i volunteer at places with autistic kids and teens. So many parents in that group credit video games with helping thei children in all sorts of ways. It really is amazing to me

That's what games are about! Not trash talking, microtransactions, loot boxes, and season passes.
