One thing I just don't get
I have never been into video games. Never. Not even when I was young, and I was the ripe age for the first video games in the late '70s/early '80s. Some of my friends were into games, but not many. By the time they really took off with the graphics and, you know, blowing shit up realistically, I was too old. Even in college (1989-1993), I just wasn't into them. I was too busy playing hearts. Yes, the card game.
I was hoping that we would never have a video game console in our house. It's not that I have anything necessarily against them, but I just didn't want to spend the money and I don't really want the kids sitting in front of the television any more than they already do. But we might get a Wii for Mia. Krys has been reading up on it and found that a lot of therapists are using it for their patients. We're going to talk to her therapists and see if they think it's a good idea. I guess I'll have to do some parenting to make sure Norah doesn't become a video game zombie.
Still, I'm astonished by these numbers. That's a lot of people playing video games!
