Gaming as an Art

I've read a lot of articles in a lot of websites discussing why games are not an art form. This is a counter-argument to that point. First off, let us define art. Based on Dictionary.com, Art is: 1. the quality, production, expression, or ...


The Games that Went Against Our Beliefs

We all have our convictions, our systems of belief, and our preferences. Every now and then, we get a game that offends our preferences, on different levels, that we end up skipping it over, no matter how big or popular it is. I'm a Muslim...


Overlooked Games that I Cherish

We all have our niche game preferences, which rarely make it to the spotlight. With all the big titles currently being released, we can't help but look back to the games that actually impacted our lives in profound ways. In my honest opini...


Not A Fanboy: My Story with the Consoles

As this is my first post, and I assume most people won't bother checking my profile (I know I don't check your profiles), I wish to share with you the story of how others may have come to think of me as a Sony fanboy. I hope that this will ...

I'm a lifelong gamer who has enjoyed video games through the thick and thin of my life. I'm also a person who speaks my mind often, which is why I chose to start this blog here where others can discuss what I have to say.

Originally a Nintendo fan, I've turned my back on it when they turned their collective backs on their old following. Currently, my Wii is still connected to my TV and I play with it from time to time.

Had an Xbox 360, which got the red ring five times before I put it out of its misery, and got an Elite, which got the E74 error and couldn't be replaced or fixed. Currently, it's on a shelf in some game repair shop, collecting dust, and that doesn't look like it's about to change anytime soon.

Have a PS3, which is going strong. It's currently my primary console.

I also have a DS and am planning to pick up a PSP as soon as Valkyria Chronicles 2 comes out. And a PC that runs Crysis, Supreme Commander and World of Warcraft, often at the same time.

You see, my posts may get responses suggesting I'm a fanboy or a hater, which is why I clarify this here: I tried all consoles, and didn't cling onto them when they started to fail, either in company support or in hardware/software.

My favorite genres are real time strategy and first person shooters, and I often turn to role-playing games and fighting games, with a bit of platforming on the side.

I hate, HATE music games. I love the songs you can play in them, but I hate the concept.
