Sounds boring. My kid (4th grade) and I blow up tanks together, cut heads off zombies, and chainsaw apart our enemies with ruthless abandon. Through these actions he's learned the importance of teamwork, perseverance, and how to not treat people like video game pixels. In other words; he's got a firm grasp on reality and doesn't like boring games.
Hi... I'm hoping a few of you can share some game recommendations:
I read about a study showing that kids playing video games over and over learn thought and behavior patterns that carry over into real life: "... with violent games -- you practice being vigilant for enemies, practice thinking that it's acceptable to respond aggressively to provocation..."
(The study specifically looked at third- through eighth-graders, not adults who happen to enjoy first-person shooters.)
"However, that does not mean all games are bad and that children will only develop bad habits.... prosocial media -- video games, movies or TV shows that portray helpful, caring and cooperative behaviors -- positively influence behavior regardless of culture."
If you can recommend any such "prosocial" video games, where characters cooperate and help each other (but not with a violent goal such as fighting a war), it would be good to reply to the post about video games in Parenting Little Heathens. Thanks!
Any guilds around for LoL, ESO, GW2, FF14, Cod:G, or Titanfall?

Absolutely. I can't think of any other games that had my heart pounding as much during PvP.
I played EvE for a couple years, off and on. Loved it. But now that Galactic Starfighter has been released for SWTOR I don't miss it so much. It satisfies my space combat craving but it's no where near as involved as EvE.
