***When he's not inspiring columns about the SI swimsuit edition and sexy string theorists, my son likes to talk to me about video games. A lot.
So to exact revenge, I make him watch vids of my fave songs. "Oh, is this gonna be another 'powerful' rock ballad?" he'll ask dripping sarcasm and impatience. The other day, he showed me this vid, the theme from his new fave Xbox game, "Mirror's Edge." How old am I? So old that it amazes me the ME lead is a young woman -- a strong, funky Asian chick -- whose digital skin boy- and guy gamers apparently have no prob slipping into. But then again, I didn't meet a female doctor til I was six.
You a gamer? What're your faves? Or are you a gamer from back in the day? What were your faves? Frogger? Pac Man? Uh, Pong?
