Jaysen was playing Super Paper Mario (because I let my kids rot their brains on things like video games and television...), and he announces, "This is a platform game".
I wasn't going to correct anything, but then I thought I'd better mention something just in case his statement later led to a google search of platform games...
"Actually, Jaysen, Paper Mario is a role-playing game. It's called an RPG (nerd)."
"But Mario is a platform game?"
"Yes, regular Mario is a platform game (and its 5000 varieties). Paper Mario is an RPG."
"An RPG. Role-Playing Game. It's when you have to walk around, talk to people, read signs... it's interactive."
"RPG is interactive. You do things."
*sigh* and pause - (why do I even try if he isn't listening?) "A..."
"Can you say it again... more slower?"
He was listening.
And what an awesome job self-advocating.
