In today's completely grown-up edition of Speak Up on Kotaku, commenter DukeofWulf muses on how easy it is for kids today to fill all of that free time they've got with copious amounts of free gaming, the little snots.
Today is a good day to be a kid.
When I was young, I had all the time in the world and no money to buy games. Now that I work, I have money but no time to game; meanwhile, you can download a demo of practically anything, and quality games are available on flash sites for free and on Steam for a pittance.
As much as I treasure my memories of Duck Hunt (muzzle against the screen, natch), Tie Fighter, and Starcraft on dial-up, I can't help but envy the choice available to kids today.

About Speak Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have a forum on Kotaku called Speak Up. That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak Up posts we can find and highlight it here.
