I keep meaning to post this thread but I always forget. I work with Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers and when board games are brought up they are either already into them or they act like it's crazy geeky (which it kind of is) to play board games.
This always leads me to ask if they play video games (almost 100% of the time they do). I always make the argument that from a geek culture stand point that video games and board games are pretty close.
I wonder what ya'll think or what your experience is. Did you play video games before board gaming? Do you still play video games? Which do you prefer and why? Do you think (as I do) that there is a strong cultural connection between video games and board games? Why or why not?
What are your favorite video games to play that you feel best give you a similiar experience to board games?
