Please Explain Video Games to Me

Can someone please explain video games to me? Honestly, I'll take whatever you've got. If you can tell me how to define them, how to identify them in the wild, please do. If you can tell me why they're special, why they're so beloved, I'd l...

 
 
 
 

Podcast Playing: Distractions, Gaming, and You

I have a confession to make: I often listen to podcasts while playing video games. It's something of a shameful secret of mine considering my championing of the artistic medium of video games. That said, I know I'm not alone in this. Maybe ...

About SongSevenone of us since 6:21 AM on 07.15.2012

Oh, hello. I didn't see you come in. I hail from the now-defunct 1UP and am looking for a new home/community for the grand reopening of my blog. Why I didn't think of Destructoid earlier is anyone's guess, but it seems like things will be a good fit here...or at least I hope they will.

Maybe I take things a little too seriously, but I like to think of it as passion rather than pretention. Please to enjoy.
