Let's begin by admitting a grim reality, shall we? Texas pretty much sucks. Texas is characterized primarily by blistering, unbearable heat and the fetid stench of oil refineries, punctuated briefly by sprawling, smog coated cities choked to the gills with mobs of angry, dishevelled businessmen driven to madness by the punishing sun.
However, for the persistent and discerning gamer, there is a hidden jewel buried deep in the hill country of central Texas. Forget Houston, forget Dallas, and forget San Antonio, my friends. Place a marker on your mini-map to guide you to where I live -- an oasis of fun, smart, and cool marooned in a barren wasteland of fail. Your objective, my fellow freaks and geeks, is Austin, TX. Join me for a tour of the most gamer-friendly town in the Lone Star State!
The mating call of the hard-core gamer.
So for gamers, there's a lot to love about Austin. From top to bottom, it's a nerd's paradise, and I hope that you enjoyed getting a glimpse into the town that I call home.
