Gaming Keeps The Family Together

Years ago I used to spend a fair amount of time playing computer games.  The problem is that I found it to be quite a time suck.

Fast forward to this Christmas and my children got a Wii as a present.  I never thought that a game could increase quality time with your kids.  I found that it gives me an opportunity to interact with them on a more relaxed basis than just helping them with their homework.  Multi-player video games are the board games of the 21st century.  Who needs Candy Land when you have Playground and can race slot cars with the kids.  I know it isn’t quite the same, but I will take it.
