My name is Dave.
I am a gamer.
I also am a university student close to graduating with a degree in Computer Games from Bond University.
Lastly, I have a podcast where my good friend Andrew and I talk about games from week to week. It's called 'The Console War Vets'. The link is on the sidebar.
So why a blog? Well I've been reading quite a lot of academic works in regards to gaming lately (for those of you not in the know, yes there is a huge field of academic essays and books regarding video games). Through my degree I've also opened myself up more to what video games offer as forms of entertainment and as forms of art.
This blog will be for budding ideas on topics of game mechanics, concepts of play, fun, design, and reactions to what I'm reading. What I'd like to do is also try and delve internally into games I'm playing at the moment, and see what's there in terms of topics.
If you're looking for opinions on games, new releases and game news, well that's what the podcast is for. :)
