Still waiting for a princess to save and an evil wizard to appear...

In war...
...guns are incomparably loud, have recoil, and are heavier than some 14 oz. plastic controller.
...the gear (plate carriers, armor, optics, helmets) is expensive and heavier than the console or system and television that depicts it.
...you don't sit in an air conditioned, dimly lit room, and press away at buttons accordingly.

Games like Cowadooty farm, market, and unrealistically entertain a younger generation of prepubescent children, add in lenient and permissive parenting then you have a combination of high pitched, short attention span morons telling you how they pleasured your mother last night. I think that guy is doing it right, get rid of naïveté, and show them how to be appreciative that they are away from such circumstances.

I don't know if it's simply due to how the article tailored the story (the writer seems to be personally against violent games in general), but it sounds like an elaborate way to say "I won't buy you the game." It seems like the father took the boy on a tour with the express purpose of turning the boy away from CoD, without any intention of gifting the game if the child were to have still wanted it. Once again, it could just be the writer of the article clouding the facts with his own agenda (probably is).

I'm not saying that the experience isn't good for the boy and most people. Actually, that's a brilliant father/son bonding experience. Can you imagine the two telling stories about this for years to come?

Love the pic in the article, one kid is all like "Oh yeah, I'm badass! Kicking it in a warzone. " and the other is like "Oh shit! these guys have real guns. "
