Who remembers that day when you beat your dad at something for the first time? Maybe you remember being woken up late at night to hook up the Colecovision steering wheel so the adults could play Turbo. For me I had always been ahead of the curve with my parents and video games and figured that I would have at least a decade before I was "too old to play." Well Yankee Candle Kid proved me wrong the other night. I'm not a huge Minecraft player. I only really started playing when the 360 version came out but so did YCK. Don't get me wrong the game is cool and love what YCK and his buddies can build with it. I've even been brought to tears laughing so hard at the dynamite castles they make and blow up. But hey I'm a gamer how much could be involved with this game. I couldn't be more wrong.
|I build the tiny house on the right. He builds a freaking skyscraper.|
So we are playing the other night and we start building stuff. I make a house and he is building what looks like a whole freaking city with stairs, working doors, lights etc. I was trying to build a fireplace when I ask YCK what block can always stay on fire? He first looks at me like I am crazy for not knowing. Then he tries to help me gets frustrated with me and finally says, "Dad just hand me the controller, I'll do it for you." I got the chills. I've been gaming 3.5 times longer then he has been alive and that little snot is telling me to give him the controller. Well looks like the gaming torch is already being passed to the next generation in this house lets hope his little sister makes it to 4 before telling me how bad of a gamer I am.
