      I'm looking for a few good men...for the Spartan Ops that is. Message me if you're interested. I've completed my Legendary solo run through the Campaign and now I'm really looking forward to doing the 5 Episodes. I just don't want to get stuck doing them with randoms.

      I am the father of two wonderful children and also a pretty hardcore gamer. Growing up in the Atari/Colecovision and then the NES age I was never encouraged but rather criticized for my love of games growing up. I was told that they would rot my brain (which we all know is false as they improve not only hand-eye coordination but memory, reading comprehension, pattern recognition, and a lot of other intellectual skills as well) and that they were nothing but a waste of time. If my parents had known that gaming would become such a huge thing in society I wonder if they would have encouraged me more. I remember entering a Nintendo tournament once here in Kansas City and making it all the way to the Finals. The games we played in the competition were Tetris, Rad Racer, and the soon to be released Super Mario Bros. 3. We had to play through the first level of each and the fastest times advanced. I made it to the finals and even got to play in front of a huge crowd on a enormous screen at Municipal Auditorium (which is usually used as a venue for big concerts and car-shows, Monster Truck Rallies, etc.). I did not win the competition but came in 3rd place for my entire city. I often wonder what I could have accomplished if my parents had supported my gaming instead of Football (which I never really had the size for) and welding. I don't play Football professionally (big shocker there...) nor am I a professional welder so were those hours and hours, day after day spent practicing wasted?

      I plan to continue encouraging my kids to game while maintaining their grades in school and trying new things. My son is 13 and really into gaming right now and as a result of having me for his father he actually seems to be a lot better than his friends at most competitive games (i.e. COD, Halo, Battlefield, etc). I tend to buy a lot of new games at release which is something I never got to do as a kid. I was always getting games after my friends as a kid because I had to beg for them, save up for them, or wait for a holiday/birthday for one. As a result my son gets to play a lot of the new games when they come out. My daughter is just now getting into games and loves Mario to death. She plays the Wii mostly and Castle Crashers with her brother on the 360 sometimes.

      How many other gamer parents out there are encouraging your kids to game?

      I'm attempting to post a journal using speech recognition. I plan on posting without correcting any errors that might occur. Right now I am actually speaking into the mind and watching the words form on screen. That's pretty damn cool!!! :-)
      I even said aloud to :-). In the way I'm going to get back to gotham city impostors so I'll see you guys later.
