Where I worked then, yes, we did this.
Google, Oracle, IBM, Apple. Most tech focused companies avoid Windows for obvious reasons.
lol, what a shitpost. I like the guy, but he can be autistic from time to time. Also he does speak some stuff that personally attack me so I may be biased. Anyway, I do not imagine him gaming.
Does it still happen today?
depends. i know some guys from my office play csgo and pubg and all that shit. i sometimes play csgo and killing floor.
Where I live a lot of IT companies allow you to do other things, including play video games, whenever you want.
But don't worry. those companies only pay just above minimum wage.
You should start interviewing for your next job
You have no idea how relaxed companies used to be by the 80s. You'd eat breakfast with everyone on company time.
You won't get this in clown world, where milking you until you break is the only thing companies are interested in.
Peter Molyneux is the video game designer. You have your molyneuxs in a tangle.
Yes, lots of dev teams would play games after work. It was especially common in game companies.
