One of my passions

Gaming:

A form of art so overlooked, yet with so much potential.

Let me show you about a little game called Passage:

Absolutely breathtaking-- life represented with pixels. The first time I played it almost moved me to tears.

But, how many games of this kind we actually see? Let me get this straight: I love gaming in general-- whether is Halo, WoW or Mario Kart, but... why not going farther? Why not exploring all  that can be achieved?

Just a thought...

  1. Whenever there's a really fresh little game I'm usually all over it. I can't tell you how much enjoyment I got out of Scribblenauts, for example.
