BY JOHN SANTINA: Should you introduce your kids to the world of gaming with retro or modern games? Super Mario Bros. or New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe? The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past or Breath of the Wild? Does Timmy seem more like a Tetris kinda kid or a GTA Online kinda kid?
Being a parent is, without a doubt, the most rewarding life choice I have made on this planet (I’m equally proud of the life choices I have made on other planets, but we’ll talk about those another time). It fills me with joy to know that my legacy will live on through my scruffy little gamepad destroyers.
But, being a parent comes with responsibility. Our children need food, somewhere safe to live, not to mention lots of love, encouragement, attention, and someone to check for monsters under the bed.
