Why Video Games?

I can understand the intellectual challenge of writing video games but it utterly baffles me why anyone would play one. When you are done you have nothing to show for all the effort. You have no skill to use elsewhere. You don’t even have any wages. Since the world is so full of real problems crying for solutions, why jerk around with artificial time wasters?
