    I think I must be one of the most uncoordinated people on the planet. These new controllers are really complicated, too! I need a joystick. I was just playing SpongeBob, in a driving tournament with my daughter. I could not even keep the car on the road. It was on the easiest level, too, the one that my 4 yo plays.

    My daughter said, "Um, Mom... I think you're better at just being a mom."

    Pretty sad, huh?

    Well, I guess I'm just an outlaw at heart. I did much better on the jailbreak game. What are they trying to teach these kids, anyway?

    Well look at it this way. Since you took the time to play games with your kids, you're daughter's comment stands correct. That's what they'll remember when they're older, is that their mom played games with them, rather than, er, not.

    My dad played Goldeneye 007 with me and my brother a few times when we were younger. I couldnt tell you how good he was, or how good we were, but I do have fond memories of him playing with us.

    My dad's never been into video games, but my mom can destroy me at Tetris or any similar game.

    My parents were never into most video games at all, but I agree with Semper that it's good that you play them with your kids, Nienna. Some of my best memories are of my Dad playing video games with me.

    I bet me and Semper are probably the only ones here young enough to have memories of our parents playing video games with us, right?
