  • 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.

  • Blog Post: It’s The Little Things: My Favorite Gaming Bits From 2011
