I can’t stress how big of an evolution this has been for video games. Do you remember the film The Cable Guy? Jim Carrey plays the titular character, a socially maladjusted cable service technician that worms his way into and subverts the social life of Matthew Broderick’s life. At the end of the film, he engages in a legendary monologue about the Internet, how it will unite the world and “play Mortal Kombat with a friend from Vietnam.” The original Xbox quite literally did that, and modern gaming was moved a step upwards ever since.
