I heard this on the news while driving into work this morning. The news article states that the Vancouver Canucks have decided that: “No more Fortnite. No more bringing video games on the road. It’s strictly team meals, team dinners and hanging out with the guys. So we put an end to that.”
I liked that the article specifically talks about the importance of spending face to face time together. Working in this field, we constantly see the negative impact of how someone can become isolated by spending increasing amounts of time playing games and not connecting with family and friends. This announcement helps to bring the conversation into the public and to hopefully have young people engage in conversations about their video playing and the importance of keeping it balanced with other activities.
