Check out my kid!

My son, Andy, is lead designer for a THQ game "Evil Dead: Regeneration". This has been a loooong project for him and his team and is his first opportunity as lead designer -- he's been in game production work in the past -- and it's been getting great reviews. It will be out very soon. We're proud parents -- check it out! He's in the Friday link ... http://thqate3.com/

That's great! Very well spoken and can talk to a camera. That's not an easy thing to do
My son wanted to get into making games, just never did anything to get there.

Andy started as a lowly game tester and worked his way up. He also has a business degree, tho, and graduated with highest honors. (Geez, I sound like one of those obnoxious parents who spends the whole Christmas letter listing her children's accomplishments. I always said I wouldn't do that...Sorry!!)

Let me be the first guy in this thread to congratulate you. Part of being a good parent is bragging,about your kids, not to the point of being obnoxious, or embarinsing them, but to let them know they are important in theri own right. It gives them confidence to know they have you approval and pride. And besides, it feels so good. After all, parents, especially mothers, are largely responsible for instilling values, good or bad, into the children. Their success reflects upon you, as it should.

And to keep this upbeat, I won't touch the other edge of the two-edged sword that pride can be.

Let your son know how proud you are of him. That'll make his day.
