The kids are just playing online games these days. It is sad that native games like hide and seek will be forgotten. It would be a good move for the Department of Education to introduce this in elementary schools again as part of Physical Education so it is not lost.

Well. Before online games, already in my childhood (snni 80), there were arcade videogames. They worked with coins (then money!) which the children obviously didn't have, they had to ask their parents (I did so!). That was the beginning of the "sunset" of the classic games for children, mentioned by you.

Yes, you're right. Many of our childhood games could be lost forever. Many children would rather play with some type of electronic device than go outside and play. Thank goodness for Physical Education in schools.
