Welcome to the Monday Media Blog on Chief 187™Chatter. Video games have long been
a favorite past time (and for some a religion) for many of all different generations. I must admit I was never the owner of a gaming system as a child, played terribly whether at the arcade or at a friend’s home, and, even today, feel my blood pressure rise with anxiety when playing a video game. Realizing this, I try to expose my children to some well-chosen Wii video games and I can see their hand-eye coordination improve ten-fold over what mine was at their ages. Incidentally, we did not choose the Wii, it chose us. My eldest son won it at his Dojo years ago. It was a grand-prize drawing and he was the lucky winner! I do so enjoy Wii for the interactive sports games, Wii Fit, and the Lego games I’ve written about previously.
This week’s focus for the Monday Media Blog is the favorite video games of your youth. Do you pre-date video games and play pinball at the arcade? Were you addicted to Pong? Did you start out with an Atari system playing Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Frogger? Was Donkey Kong your game? Educate me and others about your gaming history by including the system you used and the games you grew up with for entertainment.
