    Raising a Healthy Gamer.

    Linky.

    Most of it is common sense, but I do think the part of a lack of empathy to others online is a valid point, and a point I myself have looked over previously.

    Could be worth a read through for all of those with children who are budding gamers or currently are gamers.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    That's a really good and well written article looking at the situation as a whole, rather than taking a strong stance from only one side of the argument.

    Zak Jr, at 3 1/2, has his first console.

    VTECH V smile thing, bright orange, with cartdridge games. Bob the builder and Winnie the Poo

    So far, so very good. It's improved his joystick skills, which in my house, will be important and his ability to describe to his Grandma which way SHE should go on screen is improving with every attempt.

    Quite excellent platform games too.

    Re: Raising a Healthy Gamer.

    We got a VSmile for our youngest (good lord, so many years ago now) and I thought it was great. Still got it kicking around somewhere actually: if anyone with smaller children is interested in it I might stick it up in a for sale thread!

    Interesting, if somewhat basic common-sense, article. I'm a little disturbed by how often it mentions "supervising" your children when they're playing though: I can't imagine anything worse than sitting in a room keeping an eye on a teenage boy playing WoW.... *shudder*

    The one good point it makes is about gaming with your children. We often play hidden object and puzzle games with our kids and they love the interaction. I think we'll leave it a couple of years before we start the 4-way LAN Diablo sessions though

    Shove them onto WOW at a young age and watch them blossom into competitive gamers!
