“How Killing People With My Dad Improved Our Relationship”

I can’t really relate to the subject matter, but Gamasutra’s running an article about playing video games with dads and how they help the old bonding process.

“When I was a kid we got an Atari 2600 for Christmas one year, and my dad and I used to spend hours competing with each other in games like Asteroids, Chopper Command, and Galaga. We had a great time, and later when emulators became common, we even revisited some of those old competitions and had a great time doing it. So I knew my dad enjoyed playing video games, and yet I hadn’t been able to interest him in playing modern video games.”
