All right -  I just need to tell someone.

My master plan at corrupting my daughter has just been able to truly start now that she just turned three. My goal is to turn her into my ultimate buddy that I can play games with, take to see all the cool movies, and basically just be a cool gamer girl.

So for her birthday - I gave her a console system of her own http://www.vtechkids.com/?qs=vsmile&flash=true

I cannot begin to express the joy I had seeing her figure out how to move the care bears up and down ladders and slides and not just go left and right across the zone. (one day soon she'll figure out how to jump on the moving platforms too).

Next year she get's her first computer. (I'm still trying to sell the wife on letting it be a linux box)

And then in 15 years when she starts dating ( :wink: ) her boyfriend will surely be a gamer too!

Two for the price of one. Can't beat that. thumbsup

My 6 month old stops whatever she is doing once she spots me gaming on the big screen. I have to give her the original monster X-Box controller to keep her from getting to my other controllers(PS-2 and X-Box). If you ever thought that original controller was big in your hands, you should see what it looks like in the hands of a baby!  :shock:

I think you mean in 30 years.

I'm an ex-marine and any dirty little boys that peek their heads around my house are going to be in for a very unpleasant suprise.

To quote Bill Engvall - I'm gonna look that boy straight in the eyes, point to my daughter and tell him

"You see that girl - that's my pride and joy, that's my life, that's my reason for living. So if you even think of kissing, or hugging or even touching her. You remember these words --

I got not problem going back to prison.

Say hello to my 1.5 yr old, Oriana Skye:



She also kicked my son's ass at Godzilla:Destroy all monsters melee on the GC the other week, and I mean just decimated him. :shock:

Oh, it's like a support group.  I thought I was the only one who felt this way.

As long as she plays more than my wife, I'll be happy.

My two year old holds records on 3 different Burnout 3 crash tracks.  And despite playing the crap out of them, I haven't been able to erase them frown
And all he did was more or less drive straight...

Edit: I made sure to start him off early:

Laff - seeing my little girl do that same thing on my copy of Burnout 3 is what go me thinking about getting her that gaming system.  
I let her and my 12 year son old play at the same time one day and she decimated him in that exact same manner.
