Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed much about 2020, but one thing to be thankful for is the number and quality of the entertainments that can be digitally streamed across the world.

As gaming servers get slammed and infrastructure challenged, we ask the question: "Can Gaming Save Lives?"

It's "Games in the Time of Corona"...in Virtual Legality.
