    Do you enjoy playing video games with your children?

    Do you play video games with your children?  Which kind of games do you prefer?  Who usually wins?

    I used to enjoy it when they lived at home.  Now I enjoy playing with my grandchildren.  We play Mario or something like it on the Wii.  My 8 year old grandchild beats me every time.

      It's fun to interact with them, but my daughter has me doing the Just Dance from Wii.  Exhausting is all I can say.

    I grew up in the 80s (aka The Golden Age of Video Arcades) and still play 'em today. My kids (ages 5 and 10) also like them and we do play together. I don't keep up with all of the new systems that are out there (i.e. we don't own an Xbox or a Playstation) but my old Sega Genesis still works just fine and the kids each have a Nintendo DS. We play a lot of Mario, Kirby and Sonic the Hedgehog, and recently we all got hooked on a cool game for the DS called "Monster Tale" that I picked up on a whim for five bucks.

    My 10 year old "beat" Sonic, which I have never been able to do in the 20+ years I've owned it. I didn't know if I should be proud, or jealous! Haha. I was like "Dude, you got MAD skillz!"

      Oh yeah, I'm still the Galaga King 'round my house. Last I checked, my high score on that was 187,000 and change. Haha

    I don't have children of my own, but I do play video games with my younger cousins. Who wins? It depends on the game. We usually play racing, or action-platformers type games.

    Since I have grown up playing them, I still play them with my kids. As a matter of fact I use it as an excuse to buy the latest edition of call of duty every year. He usually wins now but practices much more than I do.
