When I was a wee lad I enjoyed many things the 90s had to offer: Power Rangers, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, and most importantly the WWF. Leave it to Freakshow to get me back into professional wrestling full-force with a free trial to the WWE Network.
I often see critiques of pop culture that hate on “lack of originality” or something to that extent. While plagiarism is no doubt something to not ignore, the idea that being unoriginal is a reason to not try or to keep your mouth shut is just absurd to me.
I’ve talked on our podcast before about my enjoyment of creating games. What I don’t remember mentioning was my childhood dream of designing video games. While I see that as something that’d be fun (but demanding and unstable in the current market), I still have that drive to create. Whether it’s writing music or coming up with a game idea, the desire to make something is constantly there.
Whenever I’m playing games of any type, I tend to forget a fundamental feature of them: fun and winning aren’t mutually exclusive. While this isn’t a stunning revelation to many of you, I feel the mixture of both seem nigh impossible.
For the longest time now I’ve had 2 major
time wasters hobbies: Destiny and Magic the Gathering. I usually can draw similarities to the two that most don’t think of immediately, and today is no exception.
