For Father’s Day, How About Some Dad Video Game Time?

PS 3

ZDNet has a cute list of things to give your geeky dad this Father’s Day. I definitely fall into this category. I already have the Geek Dad book (highly recommended), and most of the things I actually want either haven’t been invented yet (flying car) or are too expensive (a Sonos streaming music setup and someone to set it all up for me so I don’t have to do it). One gift that costs nothing is time. Time to do what? Play video games, of course.

Item number 6 on ZDNet’s list is “For gamer dads, time alone to play”. (“Let dad play with himself” doesn’t sound right, especially in this post-Weiner world.) I don’t want to give my family the wrong idea. I’d like to spend the day with them, and I will appreciate any gift I receive. (Except for SuperDad Pajamas. Oh, and the yodeling pickle. That one I didn’t need. Sorry mom.) Still, the idea of unfettered access to my own video game system during daylight hours is not the worst thing you could do for dad this Father’s Day.
