In order to provide for a safe friendly environment for kids to play XBOX with their friends, I am organizing monthly nights at our house where we network XBOX consoles together and let the kids play against each other. We started with Halo 3 since it was the most multiplayer-friendly game allowing 16 players to play using 4 networked consoles. Online play is a different experience than playing against the computer. Unfortunately, online communities aren’t the best kid-friendly environments, mostly frequented by adolescent boys where inappropriate language and aggressive taunting are common. We now play COD MW2, one player per station, ideally 6 stations total.
