After over 20 years, gaming was back in my home. What follows are the details of my inspiring exploration.
If you can't figure out a way to have a hell of a lot of fun with a bottle of whiskey and a python, then some measly video game certainly isn't going to fix the giant black hole in your soul.
In the early days of the Web, a spectacular amount of disinformation was spread about video games around the vindictive nerds and eaten up by the gullible masses.
More time and money have gone into video game assholery than real proctological research.

There are some beloved games that weren't so much 'inspired by' other games as they were 'the exact game, with a minor paint job.' Those knockoffs then went on to make millions of dollars.
Real dedication means going past hard mode and thinking way, way outside the box.
For the most part, when we refer to a game's 'addictiveness,' we mean it as a positive thing. Of course, the definition becomes blurred when Borderland 2 enters the picture.
