The lights are on
It’s been a while since I last wrote haiku about games. I couldn’t let 2013 pass without granting our dear readers at least one dose of verse. You’re welcome, or something.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy these carefully crafted poems. I spent dozens of hours on each one, making every syllable count. In the end, I think it was worth the effort. I’m sure you will as well.
