Video: What games taught me about parenting

Please don't call social services.

I'm engaged to be married (hooray!) which, if social convention is anything to go by, means my fiancée and I are probably due a conversation about having kids at some point. God I hope she never reads this.

In anticipation of said child-centric chit-chat, I decided it was probably wise to assess my suitability for fatherhood. Using games as a basis for this research meant I could justify doing it on the clock and, as it turns out, video games have some funny old ideas about how to raise children.

So, with all apologies, here's a video on what games taught me about parenting.
