I saw this commercial on tv a while back and have been patiently been waiting for someone to post it. This is really true but kids today. I play outside like crazy when I was a kid and I still had a Nintendo to play with.
Kids of today, you can still be geeky and be outside. Buy pretend swords and build a fort to defend like you do in Age of Empires. Buy remote controlled cars and find a big parking lot to play in.
Use your imagination once in a while for something other than your fan fiction stories.
