    Amazing! This shows Brazil have the capacity to accept gaming as something not only for kids, but for adult professionals, be them pro gamers or developers. Everyone who plays games is treated like kids here, it’s sad. But everyone plays flappy bird, that’s normal, just a fun little game, but if I say I play in a console at my free hours then I’m imature. Maybe the MLG creation can change people views.
