    I love Final Fantasy! The last Final Fantasy I played was Final Fantasy X-2 on PS3 a few years ago... Good article; thanks for the post.

    This is EXACTLY how I see everything and how I became so good at trading.

    I think it is. The part of business that is fun is figuring out how to win. That's what we do in video games. The big difference is that the score in entreprenuership is measured in dollars and in video games, worthless points.

    I sold my PS3 because the more I started to play COD, the less time I spent on my business. And when I got better at COD, it really didn't matter. But when I got good at business, I made more money. :)

    I tell my friends who play COD for hours at a time that they'd be rich if they spent that much time in business.

    This mindset is what actually got me started down the entrepreneurial path. I like video games, but I don't play them very often because I hate looking up at the clock and realizing I just killed six hours pursuing imaginary goals rather than being productive. I've found that I'm just as engaged by the similar strategic and logical challenges presented by my web project as I am by a video game, and it's more satisfying because I know there's a chance of a real payoff. Not to mention that my investment costs for my business are still way less than what I'd be spending on games.

    Exactly! This is how I view a lot of things about life in general. For example, why build up an RPG character when you can level yourself up by lifting weights, learning new things, etc?
