Mark Zuckerberg certainly has an impressive career. If you don’t know who he is, he invented Facebook from his own college dormitory at Harvard University in 2004. By 2007, he was only 23 and he was a billionaire. Today he is worth approximately $32 billion.
In a recent Q&A in Menslo Park, California, Zuckerberg shared his thoughts on kids playing video games. “I definitely would not have gotten into programming if I had not played games as a kid,” he states. Zuckerberg recalls a story in which his his upstate New Yor, home had a blizzard, but his sisters wouldn’t have a snowball fight with him. What did he do? He built his own snowball game on his computer. “It was a terrible game,” he admits, but it served as proof that a kid who plays games will want to know where they come from.
Having recently bought Oculus VR for $2 billion, it is obvious that Zuckerberg still has a connection with gaming today. Let’s hope that he and Facebook can do something great with it and give gamers the virtual reality they deserve.
