Both of our kids’ families have these games. But, yesterday afternoon Aaron broke his foot playing track and field on their new Xbox. Even worse, it was on my watch. We had been bowling, but Evan, the three-year-old was bored and we went upstairs. Sounds like Aaron jumped up and just landed wrong.
Wouldn’t you know, New Years Eve. He has a temporary boot on and will see the doctor on Monday. He’s a real trouper and will be fine. Still, not a good thing for him or the family. He’ll have a few days yet to get used to the crutches before school starts.
Kim says shoes must be worn from now on when playing the games. For those who haven’t played, these are a long, long ways from Pac Man and Frogger. On this Xbox game, there is a camera that looks at you, takes a video of movements and then puts it into the games. It seems like it’s at real time. Very interactive and fun. But, be careful.
