I realized I had a problem while playing NHL 15 on the Xbox with my 7 year-old. He was kicking my butt and being the competitive person I am, I was getting angrier as the goals piled up. Seeing my changing demeanor, the kid looked at me and said, “Dad, don’t forget it’s only a game. It’s not like you are playing in the NHL.”
It was as though he tossed ice-cold water in my face. I smartened up immediately and took my beatdown like a man.
