Got Game? Now I Do!

My husband is a gamer. I was a gamer back in the days of Pac Man, Space Invaders, and Mario Brothers. The new games just don’t do it for me. Maybe it’s because I have not found the right kind of game. Or maybe it’s because the gaming market has not reached out to my demographic.

That’s about to change!

Those desperate housewives from Wisteria Lane are coming to a PC near you.

According to IGN.com the game will be “lifestyle simulation putting players in the role of a new housewife who has just moved onto Wisteria Lane where scandal abounds beneath its bucolic surface.”

The game was released in early October and has gotten great reviews from fans of the show.

How could libraries use this? Why not have this as something for moms to do while their kids are at game night or while their kids are in a program. Not only does this give parents something else to do at the library but it gives them another way to connect and relate to their kids.
