Re: yOur favorite ElReg Troll speaketh
Gaming is an easy scapegoat for just being a shit dad. I will never claim to be anywhere near a perfect parent but life is about balance and we all do OK. I play games together with my two boys, it's definitely more positive for the family than negative. Yes I sometimes sit on my arse with a beer playing Battlefield 4 for an hour that could be better spend doing other things but we all need our downtime once a week.
I don't spend much time solo gaming any more but my family would probably say I spend way too much time playing violin, we should definitely ban all string instruments for the sake of the children.
