Paper on Violence and Video Game Addiction

This is a paper I wrote on the topic of “Internet Issues” for a Web Design class… none of it really relates to anything from the course material, but some of it has to do with the series of tubes. I got an “A” and the only comment was, ...


If you Love it, Change it: Suikoden (And the JRPG)

The Disclaimer Warning!!! This is long, so come at it in groups of three, or take a time-out once in a while. That’s what (s)he said. Now, onward! The Long, Drawn Out Intro Everyone’s got their “thing” when it comes to video games, ...


Good Idea, Bad Idea - Multiplayer

Now, either it was such total shit it didn't even deserve a comment of "this is total shit" or it was just bypassed by everyone; passed off as garbage intermingled in the other c-blogs of the day. Either way, it doesn't seem like anyone re...


Good Idea, Bad Idea: Multiplayer - Online and Off

The Plea As a gamer in the "next generation", I have only one question for developers: Where has the multiplayer gone? It would appear to reside all around us, in the very fabric; at the innermost core of the games we play, such as Halo...

Shane, I play video games. Learned how to read playing video games, my imagination developed alongside video games. RPGs are my absolute favorite, the thoughtful, innovative kind... or just the kind with a fuckload of characters... Suikoden anyone? Guitar Hero 2 and 3 are my newest shit, just started training for Dragonforce on Expert. I write in sporadic dialects, so forgive the thug/southern/educated fluctuations, that's just how I roll. Also if you couldn't tell, I enjoy anime, namely Naruto atm. If my laptop could handle WoW it would probably be sucking away my life right now, fortunately I can only play Diablo II, so the life-leeching is restricted.

Top 10 Games that I can think of right now, in no particular order:
1) Suikoden II
2) FF V, VI, X, XII, Tactics
3) Champions: Return to Arms
4) Baldur's Gate II (PC)
5) Valkyrie Profile
6) Ogre Battle
7) Chrono Trigger
8) Kingdom Hearts I
9) Guitar Hero II, III
10) Symphony of the Night
