Something amazing has happened. A long, slow paced, intricately crafted single player game with no online or offline multiplayer mode has released and found mainstream success. And it has done so without compromising on any o...
There is no such thing as art. A bold statement to begin with, I'm sure, but hear me out, and I'm sure you'll agree with what I have to say- or at the very least, with the essence of my arguments.

About pramath One of us since 2:34 AM on 02.13.2010
I'm Pramath, a gamer from India. Unfortunately, the gaming 'fad' has only just started catching on in this part of the world, although both Sony and Microsoft have made significant inroads. Nintendo likes to pretend India simply doesn't exist. Regardless, my favorite platforms are from Nintendo- while I DO own both a PS3 and an Xbox 360, I love the Wii simply because it provides me with different gaming experiences that cannot be replicated anywhere else, and because it is my only remaining (legal) portal to playing retro games (I'm a sucker for the pre PS2 eras, most of all the SNES era).
The greatest system this gen as per me is the DS, again because of its retro tunings, and because of the tons and tons of JRPG's it offers. It also has Pokemon, so that helps GREATLY, since in all my time gaming, NOTHING has ever addicted me like Pokemon has.
My all time favorite games? In order, they'd be The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Pokemon Gold/Silver, God of War and Final Fantasy IV.
I hope to be able to have some manner of reasonable discussion here (that's likely :P), and maybe, I'll find new gamer to game with online as well!
