Can Lego Universe Bridge the Generational Gap?

Posted Fri, Jul 31, 2009 by Martuk

NetDevil believes its MMOG, Lego Universe will be able to break the generational gap that exists between the technology savvy younger generation and their less than computer savvy parents. The family-oriented MMOG is expected to make the game more accessible for families, even if they aren't the experts in modern gaming.

"Online games and the online communications experience are very accessible and children are ready for that, immersed in that, and parents are not. So this is where the children can actually lead the parents by the hand and show them what to do," he added, "and that can be a really powerful experience together."
