Why is my dad against gaming?

Talk about graphics, 3D models, nice sprite sheets, music, sound effects and anything related to the presentation of your game (not code :)).

Some folks have a stigma about gaming like it will rot your brain or something. Although this doesn't have any basis in fact, you can't reason with these people. You just have to wait to grow up and move out of the house.

Gaming led me to my interest in game design and technology. From there I found many avenues of work and education. Hopefully that gives you something to look forward to.

I read a book about psychology from 2000 and it had a sentence comparing gaming to wasting time (as if it was different than any other media at that). It will take time to root out all that anti-gaming bias but it seems to be lowering significantly - mostly because people now see how big of an industry it is (in Poland Witcher games made it much more mainstream and accepted) and even older people were introduced to it by games on their mobile phones.
