A FAMILY that went on holiday in Britain spent the whole time in an arcade, they have confirmed.
The Sheridan family’s two-week stay in Weymouth consisted of frantic combat in games like 3D Dinosaur Hunter and House of the Dead because it was pissing it down.
Mum Donna Sheridan said: “There’s no reason why family holidays have to be about exploring rock pools rather than killing an endless army of Nazi zombies.
“I’ve got some wonderful memories, like the look of joy and exhaustion on my eight-year-old’s face when she finally reached the 40th level of Galactic Annihilator and destroyed the space-hydra.
“Personally I think the four-player option on Dungeon Siege V helped us bond as a family, and if I needed some time to myself I’d just go on the driving games.”
Dad Clive Sheridan said: “I got addicted to those machines where you drop 2p pieces onto a moving tray thing, and ended up winning 12p.
“This holiday was way better than Center Parcs, which is just a load of middle managers sitting on balconies eating salad.”
