Op Ed

Gamasutra - A Theory About Humor In Games.
Consider the laughter that occurs in a friendly game of Scrabble or Spin the Bottle. The chuckles that occur are just as honest as those that come about when listening to a stand-up comic, but the means of creating the insights are different. Game are unique in their ability to set up systematic, repeatable opportunities to create and confront mental models. Specifically in multiplayer games, the rules of the game often deliberately encourage players to create their own time, place and group specific jokes.

Valve: I give up. You win. I lost. Iím done with this. Iím putting your coal and your achievements and your sale away. Iím just gonna go play fun games that I want to play now. Thanks for keeping me from doing that for past two weeks of my life.

Do the games I bought as gifts for others show up on my list? If not, that list should be twice as long or longer. Thank God and Superman that my wife doesn't pay close attention to the bank account that we make online purchases with.
Lucky you! I had to explain to my wife that my purchase of the latest Humble Indie Bundle was done out of pure, unadulterated altruism. It's for the children, really!! Ok, not entirely, but I did pay $25 for it, and that was before they added more stuff to it too. Oh, and I had a couple of the games already.
