Cute! I can hardly wait until my wife and I join the ranks of parenthood.
Similarities and differences I expect to find between Wizardry and Parenting:
(a) both keep you up late at night;
(b) both may interfere with your work schedule/obligations;
(c) both tend to completely re-arrange your priorities; and
(d) both cost a bit of money but repay the investment with hours-and-hours (or years-and-years) of entertainment.
Differences (how, I expect, parenting differs from Wizardry)
(a) you cannot "quit-no-save" if you want a better result;
(b) similarly, you cannot "terminate game" when the going gets rough;
(c) you have very little control over character development, which path the characters take, what "chests" they open, or what they get out of those "chests," be it ebony armor or a cap of wiles;
(c) no matter HOW bad, you still love all of your characters and never even think of deleting them.
Ah well! First, honey (my wife) has to finish the PhD dissertation in CS. (If only we could interest HER in CRPGs, maybe she could make us a Wiz9!) Fortunately, I have Bane, CoDS, and (soon) W8 to help pass the time.
