|GMod on Steam|
There are several ways that GMod can be used:
1. Physics--using scientific manipulation of how items move; use of seesaws, catapults, pulleys, and cranes;
2. Videos--using stop motion style; akin to claymation; multiple pictures taken and combined to make cartoons;
3. Games--hosting a server to have a multi-player platform for playing a customized game; for example, a game in which someone can build a floating boat;
4. Comics--posing ragdolls, meaning manipulating images of characters and objects from the source engine games, which can also be found at the Steam website.
|My son even made the banner for his comic.|
Comics are what my teenage son creates with GMod. Here is the website where you can find his comic:

How about you, my readers? Would you buy GMod and/or any other Steam game? Would you allow your children unlimited play in a virtual sandbox? Are you willing to let your kids develop a love for technology? I encourage you to consider allowing your children to play GMod with a Steam game. Using GMod can count as coursework.
