I myself have lost my touch for playing video games, I started off with my NES playing Super Mario Brothers 3 constantly growing up then upgraded to a playstation where I couldn’t get enough of Crash Bandicoot. Now, my Wii collects dust after countless games of Wii Sports entertained my college roommates and I on the weekends. A survey by Activision reveals that 82% of parents and 75% of children play video games on a regular basis.
