Getting Started (obligatory first post)

Welcome to Game Artifacts, also known as my blog. This is a place to put my thoughts on video game design. I'll be taking various video games from history and analyzing what makes them tick. It will be a lot different and more interesting (I hope) than just reviewing video games, which seems to be all the rage these days.

I've spent a ridiculous amount of time playing and replaying games over the last 20 years, so I feel confident in my ability and uhh..."certification" in running this blog. That reminds me to put this disclaimer - I ain't no english major. I'm not saying I'll be writing on 3rd grade level, but I'm more concerned with getting into the nitty gritty of what makes these games work than getting whatever fancy awards authors are drooling after these days. I will try to keep spelling errors to a minimum though.

Hope to get my first real post with content up soon...will prolly do something on "Illusion of Gaia". That one should be one tough nut to crack.

You should make a post asking for comments with suggestions of games you can look at in the posts.

I like the concept of this Blog, because I played so many games on SNES and earlier consoles, so maybe I will get to know one or the other game that I didn't know yet :)
