Nick Straub

Intern

Ever since his brother introduced him to the joys of first-person shooters with Dark Forces, video games have sparked Nick’s imagination. What began as a simple pastime, would soon grow into something deeper. As Nick grew so did games. The medium that once provided simple fun soon gifted contemplative thought. From the moral dilemmas of Mass Effect to the guilt-ridden gameplay of Shadow of the Colossus, games challenged Nick’s mind. Nick’s love for such perplexion, and desire for answers, led him to a degree in philosophy. Nick now looks to spend his life languishing in a medium filled both with edifying insight and intoxicating frivolity.
