"What type is Rhydon? What does he do?" and he has to tell us what he knows/make up shit, like "Rhydon's a horse-type Pokémon because you ride on it."

Your dad may not be a part of this forum, but he most certainly wins this forum. [lol]

My parents aren't gamers at all, though they don't complain about me playing. I tried to get my mother into Super Mario Galaxy, although in hindsight it may have been a better idea to save that until she was already used to moving about in a game.

To put it short, younger members of my family think they are brill and play them alot, the older generation not so much.

My ten year old sister and her friend were playing an offline campaign of Dead Center in Left 4 Dead 2. Cue hilarious screaming of WE BROKE THE COKE, and a rediculously scary Wandering Witch that managed to sneak up behind them. Nevertheless, they were hooked.

They also hate fighting games due to the fact that they always complain when they lose and never bother to learn how to actually play the game sans mashing the controller. However, they were hooked on Mv C 3 when I first got it, and my sister actually found out how to switch characters in mid-air combos before I even got to read the manual.
