Billionaire inventor Ellon Musk is into video games, likes Overwatch and Deus Ex


Ellon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur and inventor, surely is one of the world’s best-known people, and his companies like SpaceX and Tesla Motors dabble in everything from space transport services and energy storage, while building colonies on planets like Mars is also amongst Musk’s cooler ideas…

And like ordinary people, Ellon Musk also appears to have a penchant for video games, as he recently said in an interview video posted on gaming website Game Informer. In this interview, Musk mentions Blizzard’s Overwatch as one of his gaming choices, which shows that the South Africa-born  magnate does have pretty good taste when it comes to video games, as Blizzard’s Overwatch was considered by many to be one of 2016’s best games.

Musk is also spot on when he says that the story in last year’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, arguably one of 2016’s most disappointing video games, wasn’t up to par. And the guy definitely shows an appreciation for classic gaming when he mentions both the original Deus Ex and 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution in regard to their high-quality storytelling, as these are undoubtedly some of the best RPGs of recent times.

So it’s great to know that celebrities like Ellon Musk enjoy gaming as much as the average person does, even if Musk is definitely not the only celebrity to pick up a gamepad every now and then… And this is certainly a good thing as it will make the general public more likely to get into video gaming and discover one of the best pastimes there is…
