Well, those gaming librarians have recruited me. I've always thought libraries should have games. Why not? They have romance novels, DVDs, CDs, all sorts of popular materials. But I never had any interest in games. I'd tried Pong and Space Invaders and a couple of others over the years but they didn't appeal to me. Then we gave a home to two kids and last Christmas got a Wii for the family. These games weren't your parent's games. Super Mario Galaxy and Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga were both imaginative and engaging. My TV time, never too much, disappeared for months.
Recently for my birthday I received a Nintendo DS Lite. Nice graphics, fast enough, small enough to enjoy. I started playing Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!. But soon I also picked up Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. If you haven't tried video games in a dozen years, you will be surprised at just how more enjoyable they have become. Since I'm new to this I'm open to suggestion from any more knowledgeable sources.
