It amazes me how many kids of all ages I see playing on their parents cell phones. Did you ever wonder who that two or three year old might be calling? Grandma or grand pap maybe?
Not at all, the kids are being entertained with games on the cell phone. These games are normally placed there by the mother who knows how to keep her children calm and relaxed.
I have to admit I have Flappy Bird on my iPhone. I have found when I am at a doctors office or sometimes just sitting in the recliner I like to smash into some pipes every once in awhile.
The really sad part about this is that the hand held gaming devices are becoming less of a desire for the youths today. Even if the kids don’t have a cell phone to play on you will find them carrying an iPod touch. Which is really just a cell phone without the cell radio part build into them.
Kids are growing up in a much different world and time then when I grew up. I think I heard that same statement coming from my dad when I was young. When my friend and I was sitting in front of a TV watching a little speck of light bouncing back and forth across the screen. Or shooting alien invaders until our fingers felt like they were going to fall off of our hands.
I often sit around and wonder what the next big thing will be for the gaming industry?
