Some decades ago, children preferred playing on the streets. They run wild chasing one another or they normally engage themselves in a tug o’ war. But at the onset of computer generation, Pac-Man started gobbling, not only his power pills and monsters, but most especially the games that require physical contact among kids and adults as well.
Every middle- to upper-class household nowadays own at least one personal computer. And most of the kids now clamour for an Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, or even just a mobile phone with games installed in it. We cannot blame these kids for becoming so attached to their VIDEO GAMES because even parents in their free time have gone wild playing their own casual PC games. Whatever platform it may be, the need for outdoor play has lessened and it was replaced by indoor entertainment. Will advancement in computers make our “wild” games extinct? Let’s hope not.
