ImageThe best year in the recent video-gaming history comes to an end and that's reason enough to start a poll. I haven't managed to play all the games on that list, which should be testament enough to how filled with gaming-joy this year was. Especially the last weeks have been cram-full of great games, making the holiday-season a mine-field of purchase-choices for gamers worldwide.

Mission statement

Everything i know i learned from star trek. Alas, a similar title was already used for some nerd's book so i had to go with "mission statement". I always liked how the intro of the original series had that long speech about the coming adventures of the enterprise and its five year journey, which - ironically - turned out to be only two years after all. I hope this website will have a longer life-span, but since it is my first array into the world of writing endeavours, i m not sure where the journey will take me and this website. The site still needs some finishing touches, so it doesnt also look like the first set of enterprise =)

ImageAfter a long period of trying to discuss the peculiarities of the gaming world with colleagues in the field of psychology, it dawned on me, that there aren't many gamers in my profession.

Newsflash

There seems to be yet another contestant in the ring for the big video-game-violence debate. This time it's a harvard study, that is rather positive towards what conservatives and others seem to consider the scourge of the new millenium. I havent read the study yet, but from the title and the release-date alone, i d rather be sceptical, as it looks like they are trying to jump on the bandwagon of the GTA IV release hype. Since i m also very sceptical about any study that seems to be politically motivated and / or which use uni-causal reductionist arguments to blame video-games for the evils of the world, i m also pretty interested to read it. The excerpts presented on their website are nice to read and seem to be garnered towards practical parenting advice, and seem to hit the right chords imho. So, if you are a worried mother or father and dont want to wade through all the FUD that is generated by people with political agendas and / or bad research papers, give this a shot. Or even better, just try to play some games with your kids and talk about them and the way your kids actually feel about playing them. Because gaming is a great social experience and everybody benefits from getting a little perspective when otherwise being left alone with emotionally challenging material. So, no matter if you re playing it safe (*g*) and getting some professional advice from a book like this one, or if you re more inclined to try to understand your children on your own, dont forget to have some fun by playing some games with the kids while doing it ;)
