I had a great holiday with my family at my sister's house in Battle Creek, Michigan. My nephew, the oldest grandchild, came down from Canada where he lives. He and I have bonded over video games over the past few years. We both enjoy role-playing games, and this year I gave him a copy of my all-time favorite game Dragon Age: Origins. (My current picture for this blog is my DA:O avatar, in fact.)
My nephew also really enjoys strategy games, but I can't bond with him over those. I've never been good at those kind of games because I don't plan ahead. Risk, chess, even checkers. I never won them as a kid growing up because I didn't have the capacity to see more than one move ahead. And I still don't. My life has been a testament to a lack of forethought. Just call me Epimetheus.
