Times have changed.

Today's kids play the video games of our youth and comment on them.

My, how times have changed.

Some quotes from Tim, age 11:

Regarding "Pong": "My line is so beating the heck out of your stupid line. Fear my pink line. You have no chance. I am the undisputed lord of virtual tennis. [Misses ball] Whoops."

Regarding "Space Invaders": "This is nothing compared to Grand Theft Auto III, because you can't steal a taxi cab, pick up somebody, then drive into the ocean with him."


Thanks, Electronic Gaming Monthly, for making me feel old. And I didn't even *play* videogames much as a kid.
