Welcome to My Gaming Blog

Every age has its storytelling form, and video gaming is a huge part of our culture. You can ignore or embrace video games and imbue them with the best artistic quality. People are enthralled with video games in the same way as other people love the cinema or theatre.  — Andy Serkis This is the…

It’s a confusing time for us all, but I wanted to put a post out there to encourage you to be kind, be patient and to make the most of our time in the face of uncertainty. (With game recommendations, of course.)
