During the video game lecture today, I was thinking about the few times I've played video games. Most of the time, it's been with my siblings. One of my favorite traditions growing up was playing video games until 2am on Christmas Eve with them. It was a fun way to bond and spend time together. I still enjoy playing video games every once and awhile with my family. I wouldn't normally play them by myself or for long periods of time, but as a way to connect with people, it's a fun time. I got really nostalgic watching people play Mario Party games in class. It made me want to call my brother! In that way, I think video games are a neat tool for good.
