Video-gaming Old LadyWhen I was a little girl, I didn't like television much because you couldn't do anything with it except watch it. I always thought it would be so much more fun if you could interact with the TV and influence how the story would go.
So, when video games came along, they were a dream come true.
I love them and have loved them from the very beginning. My children and husband love them, too. I don't have the skills to be good at the first-person shooters like my son, but I play the games that I can manage. Right now my favorite games are World of Warcraft, Diablo II, Sims 2, Portals and Spore. (Spore hasn't come out yet, but I love it already anyway.)
I think that video games are actually good for a person as long as one doesn't get TOO addicted! They are much better than a passive activity like watching TV.
