1.) I grew up with an NES and SNES.
2.) I have fond memories of playing with my father, who has since passed away.
Even though my dad was handicapped, he was a professional classical bassist,
scientist, and sometimes gamer. Even though he couldn’t fully use his left hand,
he rocked the bass, and let me beat him at Secret of Mana.
3.) It enhances my writing.
Reading surely enriches my ability as a writer, but so do the deep worlds created in games.
4.) I adore the soundtracks, and listen to most of them when I am driving or cleaning.
5.) Most of my friends are gamers, to one degree or another.
6.) So is my husband
7.) I find the immersive worlds created in video games to be inspiring in my daily life.
8.) I love the conversations I have had with game enthusiasts, both
professional and amateur.
9.) I feel that games can be educational, and if you aren’t a moron
and let your kid play Grand Theft Auto at three, you’re good.
10.) I rock an automatic shotgun baby.
