One of the things I like to do with my kids is play video games like Call of Duty. Now, I am from the Atari generation where my friend would actually have to come to my house to play a maximum two-player game. The game would have only one map or play surface, and each of us would be equipped with a controller made up of a joystick and one red button—that’s it! I can actually hear the gasp from my millennial brothers, “say it isn’t so.” Oh, it is so. With Xbox or PlayStation4 there are more colored buttons on the controller than I know what to do with. Which of course means that I go down plenty of times in the game at the hands of my skilled children, and my avatar “respawns” on the map without much forward progress.
