The gaming industry makes well over a hundred billion dollars. If you think, then, that any game is “free,” you might as well believe that a Nigerian prince needs your help to liquidate his inheritance. Every game has a cost because every game costs money to make.

This goes beyond Fortnite and PUBG. This applies to life as well. Every game you pick comes with a price tag: marriage or bachelorhood, entrepreneurship or employment, biological parenthood, or adoptive parenthood. Everything has a cost. Consider the price tag before you engage.
