What's the difference? XD

My dad is a gamer, has been since he was a kid, and all 3 of his sons turned out to be gamers, trust me, fathers have more influence than they think.

Or maybe it's just coincidence, but I doubt that.

On a bit of a follow up on this notion, I really think that if more people approached games without pre-conceived notions or negative ideas about it (which is certainly how kids usually approach it), even more people would be into it.

I do not think everyone would like it, mind you... But I think loads of people would appreciate the upgrade in interactivity it has over stuff like movies or TVs (that interactivity is usually a big plus but not always, even I prefer to watch something on a screen without actively participating once in a while).
