About the Author


I'm sure some of you are wonder, just who IS this guy?  Why is he talking about video games so much?

To answer the first question, I'm a pretty normal college student who just happens to love his video games.  Over the past few years, I've dabbled a bit in game design, although none of it has come to fruition.  I'm particularly skilled in Game Maker programming, but only have a rudimentary knowledge of other programming languages such as Java and C++.

Second, I like to think about things.  Maybe a little too much, but oh well.  Most people see games as merely a mindless form of entertainment, but I see them as something that is worth understanding.  What makes them fun?  Why is this game or that game "good?"  I like to look at games to answer these types of questions, probably prodded on by my interest in game design as a hobby.
