Gaming goes beyond just mindless fun. Games may have started out as simple codes with only a handful of pixels, but as they evolved from Pong to Pilotwings, or from Duckhunt to Destiny, we’ve evolved too.
First person shooters, strategy games, fighting games, RPGs and the like, now give us stories to tell, lessons to learn, and archetypes to look up to. Gaming did this.
Some say games make boys more violent, more antisocial, toxic, and worse off overall. I disagree. That can be true for some, but it likely has nothing to with gaming itself. Games should beyond just being corporate products with cartoon violence. When they do, they’re like literature. They define a generation, bring people together, and can make an impact on us in a way that no other art form can.
I started this site to share my thoughts on games, especially the deeper meaning I draw from them.
If you love gaming, or eSports like I do, you’ve come to the right place.
