Well hello there, tons of inter
I like to think that I'm not a picky gamer, I'm just selective. There are plenty of games that I will play, but there are only a select few games that I'll finish, replay, finish and then replay again. There are two things that I love about gaming above all. The first thing is deliciously streamlined gameplay. The second thing is learning how to play the game without FEELING like you are learning how to play the game. The first one is pretty self-explanatory. I don't want to spend five hours learning sub menu after sub menu and having to go through convoluted processes to save my game. I could forgive older systems because sometimes the technology just wasn't there, but today, we really have no excuse for clunky game construct and poorly designed save-point hell. Unfortunately, many games suffer from at least one of these things, and they suffer for it. Simple games, such as iOS puzzlers, tend to be incredibly popular because they are easy to pick up and put down, and the basic game controls can be mastered within a minute or two. In many cases, simplicity here is surprisingly deep, as the limited number of exact controls can lead experts to playing incredibly intense and enjoyable sessions.

Usually I write something fun and lighthearted about gaming, but I wanted to do something a bit different tonight, so if you're looking for something to make you smile and go on your way, please feel free to pass this one by. Tonight I want to talk about our society's problematic views on violence in the real world and the fake violence in video games, movies, books, etc. Even as far back as before movies were made, people have been banning books, comics, even stuff like jazz and classical music because they were considered things that could possibly incite violent behavior. But I think that a lot of what we look at today and the dialogues we have regarding violence that we experience in our everyday lives has a lot to do with how we shape our opinions on acceptable violence and "unacceptable" violence, and the strawman arguments that get in the way of actually doing something about it.
They may look innocent and vulnerable,
I will admit it.
Well, now, those are some big.
