Use The Force, Luke …

For the last week, Luke and I have been playing through the Lego Star Wars video game on our computer. I don’t play games too much because I really don’t have the time, and my priorities prevent me from spending so much time at the computer. I spent way too much time in college playing the original Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem, and Doom, so I try to avoid getting hooked on games now. But now that Luke is almost 7 years old, I can play and have fun with him at the same time. This game is awesome. The puzzles are not too tough, and it’s fun for two people to play at the same time. When the going gets tough, Luke can just drop out for a minute and let the computer take over while I get through the difficult parts. Then he jumps right back in the game and starts destroying legos. Just last night he played as R2D2 and figured out he can disable robots so I can get them with the lightsaber. He’s laughed and had a great time. He now thinks his dad is cool because he can play video games. I still plan on holding off on any game consoles for as long as I can. But we have had fun playing together clearing a level or two each night. Fun times that bring back memories of old atari’s and arcades.
