Escapism. That’s why I love video games. When playing you are not thinking or worrying about anything else. A good game can completely immerse you in it, and during this time it can feel like nothing else matters. All you are worried about is completing the level, scoring a goal, taking the next lap faster or swearing across the Internet at the person/cheat/no life sad bastard in a faraway land, who has bested you in online competition. Except he/she didn’t best you. They cheated. You’re sure they did. Probably.
Therefore, as I’m sure you may have worked out, this blog will mainly, alongside a few sci-fi musings and odd things that piss me off, be about video games. This won’t be about games in general on different formats, it will be about my experience with a particular game or format based on what I am either currently playing or what I have played previously.
