About Us

Video games had humble beginnings, as anyone playing Pong at a dimly-lit pub in the 1970s can tell you. From these roots, gambling has become possibly the dominant kind of cultural and artistic expression in the 21st century. It’s a field where technology blends seamlessly with imagination, where art competes with the requirements of trade, and where massive, world-spanning cutting edge games may stand side-by-side with little independent creative visions. Unfortunately, through these changes, writing about games has not seemed to advance.
