During my first 25 years playing video games I had no theory about what makes a video game good. I knew the good ones when I played them. I just felt it.
Video games are very popular. So is porn. If you ask game designer, Metagame co-creator and NYU Game Center founder Eric Zimmerman, they have some fundamental things in common.
An Earthquake hit Virginia today, and we felt tremors all up and down the east coast. Instead of seeking shelter or whatever you do when an earthquake hits, the games industry took to twitter to make jokes. Seems reasonable to us.
