Internet friend, Ian Bogost just released his videogame project, A Slow Year. On a cold (LA temperatures withstanding) winter night, at the end of a year that's been rife with quiet contemplation, this concept sits well with me.
I never had an Atari growing up, or a Nintendo. When other kids had videogame consoles, I had a Commodore 64, and then later a 128. If I knew then what I know now, I would have learned to love it.
