  • Blog Post: Requiem For A Seam: Remembering The 10 Best Game Instruction Manuals

    Let me spin you a yarn. Times were, you’d open that brand-new cardboard (or plastic) box and there, nestled right next to your cartridge (or disc), would be a booklet. Yes, a booklet – paper pages stapled together that told you how to play the game (and sometimes more). Remember those? Now... More
  • Blog Post: Get Lost – Why Losing Your Way Can Make Games More Fun

    It’s really easy to get lost in Mother. The NES predecessor to Earthbound is set in a large, strangely plotted map that serves to disorient and engage the player at the same time. And I don’t mind that one bit. I haven’t made too much progress in the game since I picked it up a few... More

  • Blog Post: Opinion – What It Means Now That Games Have Respect And Legitimacy

    Yesterday, I wrote a story about game resolution that sought to explain why a seemingly insignificant number is so important to so many. In it, I explored the artistic, technical, and business aspects that are woven together to make gaming a viable medium. In that piece, I made an assumption (dangerous... More

  • Blog Post: Opinion – It's Not About Winning

    Games have rules. Those rules are there to show us how to play the game, and we play that game because we want to win. Winning is the goal of almost every game. But winning is rarely the point. I recently tried to introduce one of my non-gamer friends to Lego Marvel Super Heroes. The response I got was... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: Do All Video Games Need To Appeal To Everyone?

    I recently dabbled in Dark Souls for the first time.
