How cool is this?

Video games.

If anyone, ever again, says any of these:

  • games are played just by teenage boys

  • games aren't designed for families or adults

  • games are sedentary; you just sit there and press buttons

  • games are isolating; no-one talks or communicates during gameplay

  • games don't elicit emotion

  • all games are violent


...then tell them to go away, watch the videos of people playing games on the Nintendo Wii here:

...then rethink what they've just said.

Now - how do we get every library to install one of these...
