Announcement:

I finally have six topics that I will discuss in the six part series about the problems affecting the video game industry.

The topics will include:

  • gender roles in video games
  • sexism
  • over the top violence
  • disinterest in new ideas and the focus on milking titles
  • the consolidation of development houses
  • The push towards online gaming and lose of focus on single player.

This will be a six week series, within each post I will talk about all of the aforementioned topics. I do not promise brevity, but I do promise well thought out articles about what are considered the “Six Biggest Problems in the Gaming Industry.” I can also promise that they all will make you think. So if you like video games and feel that there are indeed many problems facing the gaming industry please read them when they are posted. So instead of having to listen to some doctor of physiology who has never played a video game telling you what is wrong with video games listen to a gamer who loves video games but knows that there are problems. Would you rather listen to someone who hates video games because they saw one child play one game one time and they didn’t like what was on it or would you rather listen to a well educated gamer who has played video games for the majority of his life. 

I can even promise the occasionally joke and pop culture reference.

Timmy Cap Discuss: Problems in the Gaming Industry is part of all new content that will be seen on this blog come February 5th. Be sure to be prepared to have your mind blown.

Who used je nous se qua in a sentence?

This guy!

Sure the book is for young children from 12-17 but they can always look up “je nous se qua.” besides I used aquiline and mamihlapinatapai multiple times as well as some Latin. I say that if there are words that children do not know in a book they will look it up to understand the context of the sentence or just read further to get the context clues.

Warning Timmy Cap Tangent:

Personally I feel it is the job of literature to help foster great vocabulary skills as well as former use of grammar. As a writer it is my job to help strength the vocabulary of my target audience. Using words that children don’t know whilst writing not only increases the reading level of the book, but also the education value of the book, which is always a good thing. I strongly feel that books are not just tools of education or entertainment. A good book takes you away from here and transplant you in the fictional world you are reading about, a good book makes you think, a good book always has a moral to the story, a good book always has lovable characters that you can relate to, but most of all a book is a book that you do not mind reading over and over again.

What was I talking about again?
