Finding ways to play games all over the world.
On a recent trip to Dhaka, Bangladesh, photojournalist Joseph Allchin found something unexpected: kids living on the streets, but still finding ways to play video games. Reporting for Polygon, he writes:
"Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is one of the most densely populated cities in one of the most densely populated countries on the planet. It is also one of the fastest growing. New arrivals often come by boat. And so it is, the old docks area known as Sadarghat is home to a large community of street kids who arrive by boat from broken homes all over the country.
"Like most children their aspirations and desires are consumed by entertainment. As such, video games have a burgeoning presence. The most popular in Old Dhaka is a doctored version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."
