Child's Play (not the charity)

A while ago, Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) magazine gathered some kids between the ages of 10 and 13 to play classic video games like Pong and Tetris and give their opinions.

I suspect many have seen this already, but I thought it was pretty damn funny. Especially this transcript from the Space Invaders session:
Tim: This is nothing compared to Grand Theft Auto III, because you can't steal a taxi cab, pick up somebody, then drive into the ocean with him.

Kirk: And you can't pick up an AK-47 and go kill—hey, those aliens on the top row, you use them in EGM for stuff.

EGM: Yeah, we use them to end our articles. They do kinda look like they're from Space Invaders, don't they?

Tim: They're going to sue you.

Kirk: I'm sure everyone who made this game is dead by now.

That really was some of the funniest stuff I've read ever. They should put 'em in front of Nethack.

My sides hurt from laughing. "Kids these days."
