This may be one of the best ads of the boring Super Bowl. Now a kid born without hands or arms has a way to play video games with the Adaptive Controller and fit in with his friends, which I think is a wonderful idea. It's something long overdue, and something that Nintendo and PlayStation should also try to do. WTG Microsoft! SmileSmileSmileSmile
*By the way, I think one of those kids is in some other commercial, but I can't remember the product.

Liberty Liberty Liberty my a$$. Oh, and that goes with a majority of the other insurance ads, too.

What we need more of in this world. More inclusion, less 'self-contained' for those with special needs or physical/mental disabilities. It's 2019. Come on.
On the other hand, designing video games makes you a LOT of $$$ in this day and age. This is why coding is being taught early in elementary school. What would a kid rather grow up to be - a mindless office drone at $50-60K/year, or someone who uses computers and animation to create the next 'Fortnite' or 'Minecraft'? At $250K/year or more? I do not play video games anymore, but I know the landscape is looking brighter.

i still think its an insidious platform to desensitize impressionable minds to constant violence

i am sure the military LUVS video game usage--since thats the direction most weaponry has gone--remote killing from a faraway place monitored by drones
