Rolling Video Games?

The end is nigh – Rolling Video Games for kids in Hoboken

Spotted this odd mega-van-truck parked (the wrong way) on Bloomfield Street uptown the other night. A Rolling Video Games truck. Can you even believe it?

Inspiring kids to be fat, lazy, diseased slobs. Way to go, Mom & Dad!

Inside this truck were screaming & hollering kids, and the whole damn vehicle was rocking back and forth. Wow, I thought. We live in a city next to one of the most culturally diverse places in the world, and some parents have to rent a mobile video game truck to entertain their kids?

The Rolling Video Games truck is billed as a “Climate-controlled, self-powered mobile video game theater – to your door!”

It even comes with a “high-qualified Game Coach,” whose job is to “instruct, tutor and inspire your guests to have the most fun possible.” Since when did you need tutoring on how to have fun?

Take a look at the video below. They show kids looking sad and depressed on a beautiful clear day, and don’t get excited until the rolling video game trailer pulls up. It may just be “marketing” to them, but I think that truly is reality nowadays! And look at that clown of a mom who proudly said “I just had a party, and I didn’t have to do anything!” Really “mom?” Why have kids then, you lazy sloth!

If children of today are demanding this kind of entertainment from their parents – and parents are willing to succumb – I suppose our future looks bleak.

I am actually a lifelong gamer myself so I want to defend video games as a hobby first. I get why people criticize them, there are a lot of people in the hobby that fall into the fat and/or lazy category and there are social stigmas associated but it also helps cognitive abilities, memory, muscle memory, finger dexterity (which primary use of course is typing), and can be a good way to unwind. For every 1 gamer who is actually fat and/or lazy, I can tell you 5+ who are incredibly active and social.

That being said, paying someone to rent a space for your kids and your kids friends to play video games in a place away from home with some kind of instructor is an tremendous waste of money.

The video and pinball arcades of the 70’s and 80’s were one thing, because you had to travel to them by foot or bike. I remember my brother enjoying them quite a bit. But it was only for an hour or two. Bringing the games into the home where kids just slouch on the sofa eating cheetos and drinking sugary beverages probably does not help.

Future drone operators needed to kill innocent people from afar without emotion. Problem solved.
