That's basically what Obsidian is saying.
One of the most misunderstood concepts I've ever seen is the freedom of speech granted by the U.S. Constitution.
Is it bad to play games for...3 hours a night? Ten hours a week?
I've been a member of the GI Online community for almost three months now, and it's been a wonderful experience. Everybody's been so welcoming and nice, and very gracious in their compliments when they read my stuff. Being Member-Herded in Saint's latest blog just kind of cemented that honour. It's always nice to be included in the "in" crowd, and having my name put in with the likes of Saint, Euphoric, Demon, and so many others when "good" blogs are discussed.

Any of you who follow FPS games already know that the new Medal of Honor game takes place in Afghanistan during the 2001 invasion.
Wow, there have been a lot of super-serious blogs in the last 24 hours. I love that, especially that people feel comfortable enough with us to put themselves out there like that.
Say you are one of my Twitter followers (link's on my page!) or friends with me on Facebook. Do you really care what trophy I just unlocked while playing Uncharted 2? Do you want to see an announcement every time I blow somebody off the road in Blur?
but it's so much fun!
I know, I know. I promise this the last time I'll blog about Alan Wake (at least until the second DLC comes out). But after all of the drama about why I didn't buy it, and then the announcement that I did buy it, how could I not tell you what I actually thought of it?
Music has always been a vital part of the gaming experience, from the "bleeps" and "bloops" of the old arcade games to the midi soundtracks of the original console generations, to the sweeping orchestral scores of today. Much of it is iconic, at least to the point where you recognize the game as soon as you hear it (sometimes I still can't get the most addicting song from Dr. Mario out of my head).
