The point and purpose here

So what is this blog about?

Good question. It took me a while to answer it.

Computer gaming is my major hobby, and something I am sometimes paid to write about, so I thought “Why not write about games?”

Well, for one thing, there is no shortage of gaming blogs out there. Look around. Hundreds and hundreds of blogs devoted to every wannabe tech writer’s opinions on what is wrong with games today.

Well, here’s one more but with a little more focus.

Strategy games are my thing. I play almost every one I can get my hands on and it is something that I know a little bit about. So that’s what I’m going to write about. Not just the games themselves, but design issues, philosophy, some general game culture critique plus the usual raving about games I like and games I don’t.

As a former member of academe, I may get a little pedantic at times so feel free to smack me if you need to.

Time is precious, and I have precious little of it. So we’ll see how long I can keep this up. In the meantime, play some strategy games, get some opinions of your own, and we’ll see how much we line up.
