Aside from his efforts to reduce the risk of human extinction, Space X and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, appears to be into gaming as well.

The business magnate recently talked to Sam Altman from Y Combinator – a firm dedicated to funding early stage tech startups. In the interview, Musk discussed his fear about the possible implications of developing advanced AI. After the interview, but while the camera was still rolling, Altman touched on the “gaming” subject, and it appears that Musk is prone to playing some Overwatch, although he isn’t an avid gamer.
