    Gaming as Art

    Gaming as Art

    I quite often feel that gaming is very often overlooked as an art form, even scoffed at by various groups of people as connoisseurs of art and I feel it is unfairly so. As a medium, I believe it can explore all the themes traditional art styles do and add interesting perspectives to them as they games allow players to experience them for themselves from a different perspective. Yes, there are games that are just silly fun, but there are plenty of games that explore a wide variety of subjects in interesting ways.

    10 Video Game Quotes That Hit Me Hard

    10 Video Game Quotes That Hit Me Hard

    I’ve been playing video games since I was a kid, back when I was filled with anxiety and had a hard time with multiplayer games. I still do have a hard time playing PUBG, even though I paid the full $30 to have it on my computer. I’ve thought about Overwatch, knowing its ranking systems and awesome story beyond team-based online gameplay could maybe fit my style a bit better. But I think it’s just the way I am—I prefer story-based games that I can enjoy at my own pace, without having to rely on others.

    Perler Bead DIY: Extra Lives from 'Contra'

    "Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start:" the Konami Code that many of us recognize by heart. Contra was an NES game that I loved to play as a kid, and still do as an adult. In this article, I'm going to walk everyone through how to make extra lives from this run-and-gun game. Two months ago, I wrote a DIY article about teaching everyone how to make a block from Super Mario Bros. 3. It was the first time in almost 20 years that I've done any perler bead art. To me, doing this hobby is not only therapeutic, but exciting. You can check out that article here.
