I wish my brother was a better dad

He's a great brother, but a bad dad. He's 32 and lives at home. His son, my nephew,is 8.
All they do is play video games. They play together and they are violent and inappropriate. My brother is impatient and distracted. He's always on his phone. He prefers my nephew to be seen but not heard and pretty much expects him to entertain himself 100% of the time. There is no schedule, no constructive time. But he also has no patience for my nephew's trouble in school. It's frustrating to watch. I've tried to talk to my brother about it but he explodes every time. He needs to grow up.

Hmm sounds like my brother in law...only his poor kid is only 1 and he'd beat her if she even tried to touch his game shit.

Anyone? Am I just completely overreacting here?
