News, rants, raves and reviews from the professional and personal world of petrostudio and "preachason".
I pride myself on my memory. On my brain. My recollection. But it fails me in one spectacular way.
I don’t remember much of my childhood, or even early adulthood. Everything before about 1998-1999 just sort of slips away from me. I know why, because that was the time of my life where I starting doing different things, and changed my outlook and path considerably.
I try not to be pensive and melodramatic anymore, but reaching this age, I felt like I needed to at least reflect on how I should feel at this point in my life. I should feel old, right? I should feel that, perhaps, more life is behind than ahead. I should feel like my best years are behind me. I should feel a lot of things you hear are what 40 means.
You know what I feel? Lucky.
I’ve raved (and ranted) before on here about games and the quality storytelling that is often overlooked when pundits wax philosophical about the violence our kids are exposed to. Unfortunately, conflict (and therefore violence of varying degrees) is an inherent part of storytelling. I challenge you to find a compelling, interesting story on TV, in books or movies, or any artistic, storytelling medium that does not involve conflict of some kind.
It can’t be done, because conflict is what defines storytelling.
