If you’ve ever wondered why kids are so drawn to video games – wonder no more. My 13-year-old son is here to tell you the answer with a poem he wrote for school:
Video games are the best.
When you see the controller waiting
for you like a piece of chocolate.
Not knowing what game to play.
The excitement of unlocking a new power
At level 13.
The happiness when you reach
the Boss battle. Only to have
your dreams crushed when the Boss
beats you with one hit and you
have to start all over again.
The frustration in your eyes as you were
So close, so close. So you
Do it again, and you face the
Boss once more and this time you win!
So when you go to school the next day
people talk about the game. You say “I beat
it yesterday so easy.” Then people say
you’re the king of video games.
That’s why video games are the best.
