I suspect that you might have put your finger on the nub of it all. I
did not have any familiarity with computers in either elementary school
or high school. I finally got to use a computer in college, but it was
all punch cards and I/O clerks. Classes needing computation were taught
using a slide rule.
So computers were not part of my formative years and that's perhaps why
I don't see the attraction of computer games--or Twitter, for that matter.
