Introduction: About This Collection

This page is meant to grow into a collection of short personal pieces on videogames and the culture that surrounds them. At least this is the hope in which I created this blog project of sorts. Above all, it will hopefully become a place for me to simply write — routinely if everything goes well — about a subject that is dear to me and toward which my life has come to gravitate more and more.

The content of the pieces will vary. They may focus on a videogame in its entirety, a specific part of a videogame, issues spanning more than just a single videogame, or even issues that only carry a very tenuous connection to videogames at all. The only important criterion is that whatever I write about is something that I really want to write about at the time of writing. Aiming for roughly 500 words per piece, I mostly wish to become more experienced with regard to the discussion of videogames in a written format. Publishing this way without overthinking every single word in every single piece will undoubtedly pose a challenge, but one that I will try to overcome as much as possible. These guidelines are intentionally vague and I will still try to submit writings on videogames to other places online from time to time, especially if I feel as if my thoughts require more space than what a tiny scribble can afford…

With all this being said, welcome to my random collection of personal thoughts that — more likely than not — pertain to videogames. I sincerely hope that it will be worth your while.
