Kick is momentary freedom from the claims of the aging, cautious, nagging, frightened flesh – Willaim S. Burroughs
When I was a kid games magazines used to measure a game’s worth by how habit forming it was. Good games got you hooked, great games were addictive. We don’t talk like that any more.
Which is a shame because when they’re at their best games are a lot like drugs. They can provide ecstasy, excitement and escape. Sometimes they leave us ragged and broken, but we keep coming back for more. The come down is usually not as bad.
Games are the ultimate kick.
But now we want to be respectable, now we want to be mainstream. Maybe one day we actually will be, but I can’t help feel we’ll be missing something when we get there.
Anyway this blog will be home to various videogame related content. From reviews of classic games to Let’s Plays of whatever I’m enjoying. If I find something that amuses me I might even throw a link to it and if something makes me angry I’ll probably vent about it.
So stick around.
