Ever notice how sometimes you get so caught up in a game that you forget about real life. Its almost as if you become your character and your real body no longer exists. No longer are you clicking buttons or tapping your mouse, but you are Razlo leader of the people. I have seen this happen to myself and many other over and over again and I just was thinking about why it happens. Maybe some people do it for excitement, some others may do its for entertainment, a few even do it for obligation. There are so many games out there today that you could play for any number of reasons. Whether you do its for brain excersie or for for brain relaxation there is a game out there to fit the bill. They have become such a part of a normal persons life that it is hard to think about a world without the satisfaction they offer.
Especially when you bring the iPod and its networking of games in, and the NGP with its ideas on revolutionizing portable games to make them part of your real life. How long before I get achievements for walking a certain distance in a day? How long before we have guilds in COD meeting up in real life, for better or worse? And how long until the line between fantasy and reality blur because games become something more than just games. They become something altogether different, something we have not even thought of yet. Could be amazing, or it could turn into farm-ville life edition. .
So this was kind of a short meaningless post but I would love to hear "why you game" somehwere in the comments. Promise I will be back to normal blog posts in a while.

I have been feeling quite uninspired recently. Basically my real job and LBP2 are sucking all the creativity and energy right out of my skull. So for right now I am going to share some gaming centric backgrounds that I have been scrounging up for just such an occasion. I hope you like them as I might take a quick siesta from el blogo. I do not imagine I will be gone for much longer than a week but do not expect any updates until then.
So yeah... I will be back soon...ish...
