My son has been gaming on and off with me (and occasionally without me more recently) for about 2 years now. In that time he has played games across many generations and genres. I've seen him enjoy games on the NES, 3DS, DS, Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, Sega CDX, SNES, N64 and most recently Neo Geo AES.

Like his father he seems to have a special place in his life for platformers and has always been a Super Mario fan, but has recently been exploring the world of Kirby and loving it. Even with his affinity for platformers he is no stranger to scrolling shooters, 2D fighters, beat 'em ups, 3D action games or run 'n guns. Despite only being 4 and not having developed his reading skills enough to tackle text heavy games he seems to have a keen interest in the RPGs he has seen me play as well and no doubt cant wait to dig in himself.

Over his short life he has been able to hit several gaming milestones such as completing his first level, or finishing a game with a little assistance. But just a couple days ago he was able to do something that I wasnt able to do until I was 2 years older. He finished his first game with no outside assistance!

The game in question isnt particularly hard since it has unlimited continues, but in the past when he has come close he typically gets bored or frustrated and leaves the game before getting to the end. Most recently with Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition's final boss, Seth.

Whatever the reason he had a blast playing Ninja Combat on the AES and stuck with it right until the end. How badass is it that the first game he ever finished was on a Neo Geo AES? How many people can say that? Anyway just thought I'd rant as a proud father of a young fledgling gamer.
