I know that, I ment that I don’t really know how people react … Are people more aggressive and inclined to bad comments or easy goning helpfull people. ( From what I saw I think the later )
Ok ! I understand what you mean… I was in the Idea of text review… but indeed if you only look at the star rating, it can be disapointing.
I have to admit that at that age, I only had a Atari 2600 and at the time I would have never tought that I would one day be able to learn how to program. Nowadays, kids are almost born with keyboards or game pad in their hands…
My son told me he wanted to be a sysadmin when he grows up ( Because it is what I do ) and I see too many sysadmins nowadays that don’t even know how to script anything… making games will be a good challenging way for him to learn to :
a) Plan what needs to be done
b) Make algorithms
c) learn how programing works
d) learn how computers works
I believe that being able to control what a computer do and react to event help us learn about the way the world around us works.
another plus ! It will help us bound on other things than computer games… ( I mean PLAYING )
the only thing that I am unsure about is that we are french canadian so his english is really bad. but I intend to translate the " Making your first Arduboy game " for him… ( By the way, as I will be doing it anyway, would there be a good place here to put it once the translation is done ? )
