@kirbygirl

As a member of the Nintendolife community, of course I am a fan of video games and so it should come as no surprise that I also think kids should be allowed to play them. In fact, some of my happiest childhood memories involve saving up enough rupees to buy a blue ring, jumping on a button to make a bridge disappear, and shooting even the fastest ducks. It's just that I think this should be done sparingly, and so I took a moment to encourage parents to consider alternative recreational activities. I don't think that's entirely out of line - I mean, Nintendo devices are actually programmed do the same thing (I'm sure you've gotten the "Why not take a break?" message before, which was probably even less solicited than my original comment). Looking back, I realize my comment could never actually convinced anyone of anything, except maybe that I was trolling for negative feedback, which I really wasn't. I'm happy your son plays outside a lot. I'm sure he'll treasure his time with nature at least as much as his time with Nintendo. Let's hope more parents are like you.

Kids should play outside in the summer. They'll have to spend the whole day indoors when school starts up again, and even worse, when they grow up they'll be stuck in an office from sunrise to sunset. Encourage your kids to go outside and explore the world this summer.

We should all report Nintendo to the BBB! I already commented on this article, but I have to leave another comment because the more I think about it the more disappointed I get. I bought a couple extra games to make it to platinum status because I assumed Nintendo would do what they always do and offer some amazing rewards, and now I feel like they kind of cheated us and broke our trust by going the cheap route this year. Oh, and to all of you who say we should just be happy with any reward: these rewards are a lot like the bonus you get at work - they are basically part of your salary, like how you factor the bonus in before you decide which job you're going to take, or in the case of Nintendo, we decide how many games we are going to buy based on the points it will take to reach platinum status.
