I’m a geek. I know that comes as an absolute shock, but yea, I’m a big gaming nerd, comic book nerd, what have you. As a kid, I used to skip class to go hang out in the computer lab where we’d challenge each other in little Photoshop challenges making website interfaces for Star Wars fan sites, video games, what have you. I’m a geek.
Growing up, I used to idolize the “game dev culture”. Big offices filled with toys, statues, all the kinds of crap you might see if you stopped by our office now, but back then I wanted to grow up to be a video game producer. I’ve been a professional blogger, and I’ve even worked in marketing at Nintendo of America, but the gaming industry has changed so much that publishers are taking fewer risks, and the games that seem to be coming out are more and more “of the same” vs. anything risky, anything exciting.
