Especially with games like Disneyland connect coming out this is a great time to embrace children and gaming.

Exactly. Instead of parents condeming gaming, take an interest in your childs hobby and learn why the enjoy it so much. Even if you find you don't enjoy it, at least try to talk to them about it.

My dad mostly just plays FPS games, but he still tries to chat to me about games because he knows they've been my hobby for over 15 years now (I've been gaming since age 4) and he's proud that I write about games and deal with publishers and developers every day. He's even proud that I became an Xbox Ambassador to try and help out newcomers to Live. Thanks, dad :D

This brings back memories of when my father introduced me to Tekken when it first came out on Playstation. We were big Bruce Lee fans so of course we flocked to Marshall Law in the beginning but then my father showed the different styles of fighting he learned in classes and explained the origins of those he recognized in game.

It felt more like a history lesson than a fun time but was still worth it. We still fight on it whenever we have the chance to visit each other.

The games I wouldn't mind teaching and playing with my future daughter, Streets Of Rage II or Demon Souls.

Speaking of owning, my brother and sister started playing games on the DS with Pokemon and Cooking Mama but when they started playing God of War and Devil May Cry they're better than me... :/

I don't know if the young kids today can just adapt that well or I'm just that bad. lol! XD
