9 gadgets to satisfy your inner gamer
  • What is the hottest game in 2018? Right now, Fortnite is killing it. The iOS version made $100m in the first 90 days.
  • What big new games are coming soon? Look out for Fallout 76, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Mario Tennis Aces (released today).
  • Do I need to worry about gaming addiction? Not unless gaming is having a negative impact on your well-being. This only applies to around 0.3–1% of gamers.

Ever notice your fingers twitching at the mere mention of your favorite game? Do you find yourself turning up to every party dressed as Master Chief? Do you flinch at anything that sounds remotely like a Clicker? These are all sure signs that you’re a gamer.
