Playing a shooting game on a gaming console with high fidelity graphics and playing it in your street with plastic guns may sound similar but are not even remotely related to each other. You see, while you are playing on a gaming console, you are not required to have an imagination; it is all served to you. You choose one of the available weapons, point the gun, shoot and keep shooting till the computer tells you have killed the zombie, and you jump in your chair and do an imaginary high-five. Doing the same in the street with your friends required imagination - and a great deal of it. Your imagination gives you the weapon, your imagination tells you if you got the cop/bandit. You are not limited by anything but your own imagination, if you can imagine a bazooka, you can have it, if you can imagine an anti aircraft gun, you can have it. And not just you, all your friends playing with you.
So if you want your kids to have an imagination, take the remote control from them, and send them out to play.
