When Online Gaming and Offline Children Don't Mix

Whenever I post a story about a parent neglecting their children while playing a massively-multiplayer online role-playing game I can’t hide my disgust for that sort of person, so you can imagine how I felt about myself this weekend when my two ten-month-old children left the house in the middle of a boss fight.

One of the things people said to me when I first had kids was “I guess your time playing video games is over!” That hasn’t been the case, of course, but I have had to limit myself to games that have a pause button (read: single player only) to keep exactly this kind of thing from happening.
