Steven's also an avid video gamer. He's 18 and has played video games since the age of 12. He says:
"In games, I can run, I can jump, I can play sports, and I can defeat fantasy creatures and save the world. Video games take my mind off my pain and allow me to live at least through the characters as a normal person."His parents are well aware of his video gaming habits and when he was younger actively monitored his game playing. They also pay close attention to game ratings.
"Please, if you care so much about your children," his father said, "take a minute when you're with them buying games and read the rating box and why it's rated that way."Steven maintains a role playing game site called The RP Site.
