How interested are you in video games

I could care less and it is hard to pretend to be interested when my son goes on and on about the games he plays...I know I'm a bad mom for pretending to be interested instead of genuinely interested.

  • I like a couple of them but....I do not like the way they get kids 'hooked' so fast and furiously!!
    You really have to have control. My DH even started to notice himself wanting to play more and more so, he quit.
    IDK,...there's just somethiing about that 'instant gratification' that gets everyone hooked on playing and it's creating such a problem with our youth today.
    I didn't buy my girls any game systems but...my SS has one that he brings here. His life is very, very sad because of it. He's like a recluse at his home (with his mother), she's happy, she has a babysitter 24/7. We limit his time here but then he pouts.
    Grrr...not a good thing if you're not a strong person with sort of thing.

  • ~*Giggles*~... I like playing them myself, but mine are more PG... my son that is turning 16 soon plays more kinds than I do, and even though I love playing them... I can care less about some of the ones he does... hahaha

  • Gaming is a way of life for us. Hubby is a serious gamer and I kinda got sucked in as well. But it's not like I sit there all day playing lol
    My boys are still little, they don't play. My 5 yo shows interest and I can't wait to play Lego Batman or Little Big Planet with him! It will be something to do on rainy days ;)

  • yeah I tried to play lego Batman but my son would just chase me around, I would get lost I don't know lol, maybe I'm just not cut out to play with a silly young man and his video games. He "toys" with me when I try to play so I don't then he talks my ear off about it

  • I love playing them. I love the Lego ones the best and I am also working through the Assassin's Creed ones when I need to destress.
