Elon Musk Reveals He’s Actually a Pretty Active and Knowledgeable Gamer

When Elon Musk isn’t launching┬áPayPal, sending robots to space, or single handedly turning the auto industry on its head, you might find him throwing down some Overwatch, or some of his other favorite games. How does he find the time to play videogames? Who knows, but here are some of his top picks…

“Overwatch was amazing, generally Blizzard does great stuff.” – Elon Musk

Musk reveals that his kids are super into HearthStone, too.

The interviewer went to end the discussion, but Elon Musk decided to ask him what he’s been playing lately. You could tell Musk was excited to talk about gaming, it’s got to be a refreshing change of pace from being the real-life Tony Stark who is constantly being asked about really serious and heavy stuff. Also, it’s cool as an interviewer to have some actually engaged in a real conversation who cares what you have to say.

He criticizes the latest Deus Ex game by calling the storytelling “kind of lame”, but calls the storytelling from the original one amazing.

Musk is introduced to The Last Of Us, a game that flew under his radar, surprisingly. But give the guy a break, he was probably busy inventing a better battery or something.

He says he’s heard good things about Uncharted, but hasn’t tried it. No Uncharted, no Last of Us… Elon Musk doesn’t own a Playstation confirmed?

Check out the extended interview below where he even engages other people in the room into the conversation:

Gaming is big business too.
