Oh, For The…

I noticed something while the kids were playing games this weekend.  The cold weather plus rain made for a perfect time for the youngest to finish Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time and the eldest to work on LoZ Skyward Sword.  And of course with us being all social with our games, we watch each other play.  Even though sometimes each of us wanders off to do something else, we always wander back to encourage the player, laugh at the game’s humor, and simply enjoy the plot of the game being played.  Mostly I watch without comment, though if I asked I may give a hint, or not, depending on the skill level of the puzzle stumping the player and on whether it’s just a curious kiddo who wants to know what they would find out by playing the game.  Then there’s the boys.  Eldest encourages the youngest and vice versa, but they also do this other thing.  When the eldest is playing, I have to tell the youngest, “no spoilers!” so he doesn’t wreck a puzzle or the plot development for the eldest.  And when the youngest is playing?  I end up having to tell the eldest, “no backseat gaming!”
