NIn the first half of a century, I added a video game to a long list, though I wasn’t as good as my brother. On Christmas day in the 70’s, Santa delivered us what we now call the console. On top of that, as I remember, you could only play that simple tennis game called Pong. I hit him firmly with it, but to be fair to the youth, he was barely school-aged. Sadly, it represents my last victory over him. Alongside Lego, math and girls, video games have become what I (especially myself) have determined to be unsuitable.

The game is now Very big and smart business, Gives joy to a huge number of people. Just this week, Oxford University researchers reported: Games can be good for your mental health... It would be ridiculous to disdain everything just because I haven’t made a single word since the famous Pong victory in 1970-something.

So lately I felt like I was missing out. The game Fomo is finally here. But the help is at hand. My friend and colleague of the BBC and S4C, Steffan Powell, is an expert in the gaming business. His podcast on this subject has just started on BBC Sounds.It is called Press X to continue.. We might set up an alternative called Press X to Give Up for incompetent people like me in the Pong era.

I asked Stephan to recommend an entry-level game that you can try for yourself, a portal that lets you peek through the path of this mysterious world. “For someone of your age” he started, it meant there was no crime, I’m sure, “I’ll go one on your phone. Try it. Monument Valley.. It’s really beautiful – it’s actually pretty touching. “
