It 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)
