The always worth-the-read Dean Takahashi penned an open letter to parents yesterday:
As teens inevitably turn into twenty- and thirty-somethings, they will bring a familiarity with game genres to steer their own children toward fun and enriching family entertainment, which in many cases will happen to come in the form of a video game. The current unease over video games, like previous incarnations of this same argument over rock and roll, will fade into the generational mist.
Good stuff. Towards the end, where he says the best thing parents can do is game with their kids? Well, guys like GamerDad and Jeff Freeman have been saying the same thing. And when you read things like this, and then you read the psychotic nonsense of BatJack ... it really shouldn't take a lot of time to figure out the more rational side on this debate.
