Lego Mass EffectIt today's podcast, I talked about my kiddo being allowed to play Mass Effect if he did cool stuff based on the fiction. Here's a repost of a journal from last year where I posted some of his creations:
My son, Jack, is a lot like me. He and I have a deal: he can play videogames as long as I get to approve them first and he does something creative with what he learns and sees. He usually either writes stories or build these awesome scale lego models of stuff from the games. Or talking my head off (or the head of any adult who will listen) about the fiction in the games. Here's some of his Lego stuff from Mass Effect:

Geth and Geth Prime (<--- linked in case you have no idea what these are)

Geth Colossus

Hammerhead Vehicle

I always think it's awesome when parents and kids do cool things together. Yay for learning and creating things.

He might take Burnie's job as a writer for RT.

That is so cool. I loved playing with Lego's when I was younger. Jack's got a lot of talent, you should post some of the stuff he builds in Minecraft.

Your kid is definitely talented. It's great to see that you have a great role in your child's development! I bet it doesn't hurt that you are probably one of the coolest individuals on the internet! xD

That's awesome! Also a brilliant idea, turning video games into an exercise of creativity and learning.
P.S. I love how you always refer kids as 'kiddos'. Makes me smile every time I see/hear it.

What an awesome father son combo. I hope there are more parents like you out there, teaching kids to be all awesome and etc.

That is actually extremely impressive! Also I like the idea of "use what you learned"/"be creative"
#18  Posted 3 years ago
He built that? That's impressive for a child....or anyone for that matter.
#19  Posted 3 years ago
that is amazing!
#20  Posted 3 years ago
If only more parents would take a positive interest in their kids' hobbies. Thanks for proving gamers are good parents, too!

That's awesome. I guess now you're thinking "Damn, now he CAN play Mass Effect." Just don't let him go to certain places (isn't there a strip club in that game anyway?)
#22  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 1 Ditto
While obviously impressive, you two should undertake a Lego Normandy.

Now when I see these photos, I'll think of Burnie and little Jack.

In reply to fabledgriff, #1:

Not sure where this started but I think these are all the first pictures put together.
Google Storm Trooper Dad. (I make it a rule to find the answer and post it in replies but Pax Side Quest Dinner is soon)
