In my family it is a resounding "yes". We played games growing up and when we get together. This is a bonding ritual. We don't talk about sports, religion, or the weather. The games have changed over the years but as far back as I can remember we played board games.
Now, I play interactively with my family over the internet.
I was worried when video games started that this would changed the whole family time together.
I played video games with my kids, so perhaps this is just the evolution of family time together.
That is a great question.
