GamerDad is a great site with a lot of great information for the ill-informed parent to educate themself about video games. Josh at Cathode Tan has a great interview with The Gamer Dad himself, Andrew Bub. With all the undeserved attention that video games and violence are getting (maybe some is deserved *cough*Rockstar*cough). The interview is great, read the whole thing. Since I am a “Gamer Dad” myself, I can definitely relate to the issues he raises. My kids aren’t old enough that I have to worry about this stuff yet, but it’s great that Andrew has provided such a helpful resource. And don’t think that because Andrew tells it as it is that he’s a “prude”:
Of course after the kids go to bed I’m all about Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Battlefield 2 baby. When the kids are away, then your friendly neighborhood GamerDad can really play!
