Here’s a thing about me: I don’t like video games. No, wait, that’s not entirely true. I spent a sizeable chunk of my teen years with Mario, Luigi and Duck Hunt, and I was unreasonably proud of my Mortal Kombat skills #fatality
But things have changed and honestly, today’s games scare me. Sarge and I decided a while ago that we wouldn’t be encouraging our kids to play video games at all. We wouldn’t be buying a console and we wouldn’t be introducing them to games on the computer or iPad.
Yeah, I know, we sound super fun, but we figured there are better things kids could be doing with their brains than trying to slaughter characters on a screen.
AND YET: here I am, telling you to try the Nintendo Switch #hypocritealert
I know, I know, I don’t know who I am anymore either. But I just didn’t expect a video game system to be so much more than a screen… hear me out.
