In which I realize (finally) that the basic gameplay of most MMOs is dead boring.

Boardgamers, miniatures wargamers and pen & paper RPG players all feel comfortable with tweaking rule sets to suit their play styles. Why don’t video and computer gamers do the same thing? Just because a game lets you do something, it doesn’t mean you have to do it.

A bit of reflective pondering about why a forced break from a game often results in my permanently leaving that title behind.

Recapping my thoughts on what is very likely my personal game of the year. Pure fanboyism inside.

Uncharted 3 reminds me why I came to love video games in the first place.
