Minecraft -- the latest computer game that's turning my children into zombies -- is apparently not all bad.
Like the kids in this story, my boys have developed an addiction to this game. It’s especially noticeable on a day like today: Sunny, 72 degrees, perfect blue sky. While I’m sprawled out on the front lawn with the dogs, soaking in the last rays of sunshine before fall hits us, they’re waiting their turn to kill a zombie or something.While I’m relieved to learn that it’s not an especially violent game and that it requires players to actually think, I’m not too pleased that they just spent the better part of this glorious weekend staring at a screen. But, like most obsessions, this will pass. Let’s just hope their next addiction involves doing something outdoors, with or without zombies.
