I didn’t even realise this was up at NZGamer! Apparently will be on the 3news.com gaming page as well, but I haven’t seen it yet.
Kids and computer games go together like dogs and tennis balls – you just can’t seem to separate one from the other. Those of us who were the first to have computers and gaming consoles in the home – some of the original gamers – are now approaching middle age and parenthood. Introducing gaming to our kids is both an exciting and daunting prospect.
In a sense computer games grew up as we did. In the early days the games on offer were the rudimentary classics like Frogger and Donkey Kong that entertained us for hours as kids. Then in middle school, games, like some of us, were introduced to the Dungeons and Dragons universe, and a whole world of RPGs opened up before us. Racing games became sophisticated when some of us got our first set of real wheels. And, dare I say it – there are bound to be some gamers out there who had their first glimpse of sex through titles such as Leisure Suit Larry.
Things are different now.
