Crime is a constant feature of video games writing. Somewhere, someone is doing something illicit with them — sometimes comically stupid but potentially tragic.

My trip to North Carolina to attend the East Coast Games Conference in Raleigh last week was a ruse, a feint. My real target was a (mostly) unassuming office structure in the Raleigh suburb of Cary, the birthplace of some of the greatest games of the past decade.
