Plenty of dads love gaming. And plenty of dads love dad jokes. So, it makes sense that dads love video game jokes.
If you're anything like me, you grew up playing games. Starting in the mid 90s with my elder siblings' NES before moving onto my own video game console in the early 2000s. And I've been a gamer ever since.
I used to play games with my dad a lot. Visiting him twice a week after my parents' separation, I'd take either my PSOne, PS2 and eventually PS3 to his house for hours and hours of gaming. He was useless - there's not a single video game he was good at. But I think he just wanted to join in one of my favourite hobbies.
And now I'm doing the same with my own son (except I actually love gaming!). It's something that's just for me and him, spending time together. And seeing as he's really started getting into jokes, we'll sit playing games and telling video game jokes to each other. I've even started putting video game jokes as part of my birthday wishes in his card!
And we've got more gamer jokes in our inventory than an FPS character has weapons on their back.
