I kind of wish I was younger and had parents who gamed to understand this, but I’ve heard this repeated a few time from other parents and as an aunti I am kind of seeing it now that he can kind of play the games with us.
They play minecraft on occasion. Daddy doesn’t care for it much. Mommy has been using it as a teaching and lessons learned tool. Nephew isn’t very good with sharing for example… and despite how many worlds there are he wants theirs. There is something about playing in the world the adults play in, our world, not his world, that matters.
Fortunately, I am not bored at all with where we are at, and it is my understanding that this boss opens up a lot more play, so we should be set for awhile after that. I don’t know that we will approach all bosses this way in the future, but the first one… it just feels wrong not to play with our whole group and be able to to hear his little voice on Discord while we do it. I expect death will be involved, but we’re also trying to teach him that death in these games is normal so he doesn’t have to be so concerned about it all the time.
Interesting about the raiding part. I didn’t know that.
I do know the characters move seamlessly between worlds, so I should remind them it’s okay if they want to play with him before I get off work so he doesn’t have to wait full a full work week to play. It’d be also be nice if they stop grounding him on weekends, but hey six years are what they are.
