My soon-to-be 12 year-old-son got excited last night. I know this because he actually emerged from the depths of the cave where he lurks.
Looking back on it, setting up a computer in his room was probably a bad move. We haven’t seen much of him since.
So, when he approached me last night he had my full attention. For a minute there I thought maybe we had reached a turning point and that perhaps he’d begun to outgrow video games.
All he really wanted was to clue me in to some online rumors of plans by Nintendo to introduce a second version of its popular DS game system.
He’s always been all about video games and probably always will be.
