Right, I guess I really ought to introduce myself. I hear it's the done thing. Well if you've followed me over from my wargames Blog Frontline Gamer you'll almost certainly have a better idea of who I am and where I'm coming from. If you haven't then here's the short version, I'm a dyed in the wool geek. That's all things geek, be it math, comic books, collectible figurines (they're not toys so shut up!) wargames, card games and of course computer games. Given the depths to which I'll often go to sate my own geeky hungers you might be forgiven for thinking I might be some elitist snob...
I'm 100% not. I have no desire to tell people what is hardcore and what isn't (seriously, what does that tag even mean?). I'm not going to tell you what a game is or isn't, and I'm certainly not the sort of person who would ever limit the experiences I have with some arbitrary definitions. I love gaming of all varieties, and I just want to have a little place on the interwebs to call my own where I can have discussions things with fellow gamers of all flavours, that hopefully don't descend into rabid fanboy arguments and meaningless dichotomies. You have an opinion that's cool lets hear it, but don't shout others down for also having opinion's.
The world of computer games is far too awesome in my humble opinion to spend so much time and effort on banging our collective heads against a brick wall of ignorant dimwits. Nope, I want this to be a place to discuss philosophically my thoughts on gaming. I do have strong opinions, but I'm more than willing to listen to yours, if you have any, I won't shout you down or delete your comments if you disagree with me, it's not who I am. Just please remember to keep it civil and be nice to one and other, no insults or baiting. It'll not be tolerated. Peace out!
PS. I know this place looks as rough as nails right now, but I'm working on it. I've only just decided to start writing the thing so bear with me while I spruce the place up. Cheers.
