I'm in the mid 20's crowd, but I spent plenty of time playing outside as a kid. Building forts in the woods, using my imagination to make things so much better, haha. Even indoors I was into action figures and legos. I look back and think about how much imagination was used, it's incredible. You are right though. Now kids just jump on the video games and spend hours doing that... of course so do I now... but I didn't always!
I hate thinking about it sometimes, makes me feel old!
