Olympic Gold? Thumbs Up!

There are many Summer Games available in iTunes and GPlay.

I played one such game from stickman games today on an Ipod and won 8 golds ( Including 2 Gaming World records ), while competing against the top competitors in the gaming world.

Obviously, I had to sacrifice something. I now have an excruciating feeling on my thumbs, which reminds me of the months spent in front of TV screens trying to make Mario beat the juggernaut dragon and rescue the princess.

All of this makes me wonder:
- May be India has exorbitant talent in the interactive entertainment or the Video game industry.
- May be Indians have a lot of potential in games involving thumbs / fingers ( Archery, Arjun, Dronacharya and Ekalavya comes to mind )
- May be we should stick to what we know best, rather than expect Indians to stick to their best forms.

Just a thought :)

Btw, the above post has no pun intended. Though I know pun fans would not be able to hold themselves back.
