If you’re from the United States, UK, or another nation that’s commonly referred to as “the West” then chances are that you, like me, are not personally familiar with the culture surrounding internet cafes. On my side of the world, when I think about playing a game online, I think about going to my apartment, turning on my PC or console, and jumping into whatever game I feel like playing for however long I want to play it.
I have a home with an entire room that is dedicated to gaming which includes a space for VR. I have several of the most recent video game consoles, I’ve got a relatively powerful PC, and all of the other amenities a modern Western gamer is accustomed to having readily available.
In China, the reality is often much different.
