Tagstween, video games
Our parents told us we could be whatever we wanted when we grew up. My mother said, “You could be a doctor, an astronaut, or even the president.” Later on, I realized we didn’t have the money for me to go to school to be a doctor, NASA got canned, and blue collar families don’t produce presidents. So, here I sit, writing these product descriptions you keep reading. That’s why my kids are going to design video games. I don’t care about them having a rewarding career or creating cool stuff, I just want to live in a pimped out retirement home where I finally have the time to play JRPGs all day. At this point, I’ll be happy to just retire before 80.
Buy this book, and your kid will be well on her way to designing the next Call of Duty segment or Madden 2035. The publisher recommends this book for ages 10 and up, but I’m betting your seven year old will be able to grasp the basic concepts.
Meanwhile, check out this comic from The Oatmeal about growing old and playing online with 13 year olds. Enjoy!
