Games, Games, Games

Rummage through a haphazardly curated blog full of words about games!

My name is Ness (technically Vanessa, but I became Ness after Earthbound came out, because of course), and I like to play a lot of games! More specifically, I like to write about indie games, but I am also an avid fan of all things game related.

I’ve been playing (and thinking about) games before I could even form coherent sentences. I fondly remember the days when I would sit in my Ninja Turtle jammies and play Tank (Atari) with my dad, wondering why he consistently won. In fact, beating my dad at video games became a major goal in life, one which I never quite managed to achieve on a regular basis. Now he is retired, and plays Farcry 4 all day. This is a new goal I must achieve. Thanks, dad!

Anyway, my love for video games drove me to study game design, ethics, and theory in school. That way, I could constantly be thinking about and playing games, and actually have it counted as something productive! I even got to work on a few really cool games in the process. Eventually, I wrote my M.A. thesis on Earthbound, which my advisor, being a legit Art Historian and doctor of Philosophy, only grudgingly accepted (nah, he was really cool about it, but seriously). Thanks, advisor!

ANYWAY, I believe video games are important. I mean, a very large proportion of our population is actively playing games. Games can be immersive, fun, and most importantly, a viable interactive art form that can teach us about culture, ethics, and basically, ourselves. Games can promote change for the better! Yay, thanks, games!

OK, so here’s how it works: I play video games, and sometimes I write about them. Game reviews are simply titled as the name of the game, and everything else can be found under the category “miscellaneous.” Let’s engage in dialogue about games!
