There you have it, my friends. According to my son, video games are the best invention in the face of the earth. I, sometimes, tend to disagree with him because as a mother, I worry about the effect this could have in his social life. However, I have to admit that after playing some of these multiplayer video games myself; with him as a coach, and seeing the interaction people have while playing the games; I, in fact, realize how this experience has stimulated on him the sense of leadership and teamwork. I think, at the end, that’s all it matters. Of course, everything done in excess is bad for us, but if by playing these games with moderation and not allowing it to control his life, he will find his place in this world, I guess I am very up for it.
Happy online gaming, my friends, but remember; exercise caution when interacting with other people, especially while using one of these multiplayer’s video games. If you feel that something doesn’t seem right; it’s probably because it isn’t.
