Back in 2019, Henry Cavill did an extensive interview with GQ, talking about his profound love for gaming. During the conversation, he recalled the time when he and his brothers used to play video games together. They grew up playing games like Delta Force and Half-Life and used to host LAN parties in their mother’s dining room. The 40-year-old revealed he used to feel quite frustrated because his younger brother overpowered him often.

But when his sibling changed his gaming strategy, it came as an advantage for the Man of Steel alum. “He actually started using military tactics, so my youngest brother was getting slayed at every corner,” laughed Cavill. In a nutshell, he had an adventurous childhood and gaming had a huge hand in making memories with his brothers.
