About simjaehyunone of us since 1:14 AM on 11.20.2007

My name is Jon and I am a college student studying Creative Writing. The purpose of this blog will be to challenge established conventions and hopefully elevate the budding academics of video games. I want to remind everyone that opinions are merely just that, you don't have to agree with what I have to say. I'd be more than happy to enter a civil discourse with any of you, but I will not tolerate ignorance and illogical arguments. Failure to comply with common sense results in a loss of the game.

3/6/08 - I plan to post more often, but don't expect me to soon since finals are coming up. I'm also contemplating on whether or not I should start reviewing games. Go play No More Heroes if you haven't already. It's an incredibly original experience and one of the funniest games I've ever played.

Currently playing:
Super Smash Brothers Brawl
No More Heroes
Team Fortress 2
Halo 3
