Being able to solve a game puzzle by using the Internet is something these punk kids today take for granted. Playing those with no guides or help was a hair pulling experience (although rewarding if/when you finally figured it out).
I chuckled when I read "punk kids."
Not to get on a tangent but I really hate their expected freebies and trophy for everyone approach. I run into a lot of them on COD, they'll get 10 kills themselves on a better Internet connection, then their killstreaks will get them 30 more free kills, yet they truly believe they got all 40 kills them selves.
One of the most important words a child should be told is ,"No."
Start as early as you can to stop letting them play the game they call "I win."
Despite this being the age of social networking, there are not figurative walls everywhere. You are who you are everywhere. Whether it be face to face, online gaming, or on a forum.
Last night I was playing NASCAR online, my car got a flat and it drove me right into another player. Suddenly all I'm hearing is that I'm just the biggist idiot, idiot, idiot. I would hope he would think better if he were face to face.
