Well, hello there! My name is Alex and I currently run this blog. Firstly, thank you for visiting and I really hope to make your time worthwhile. As the name suggests, this blog primarily discusses all things about videogames, as well as branching into the related technologies. Videogames happen to be a passion of mine since an early age and I guess you can say I am a gamer at heart.
The videogames industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, and one that has a rich vein of many topics to discuss. The progression, from a technological view, is staggering, but there are other areas that I believe are worth talking about. Not only are videogames fascinating from a technological perspective, but they also touch upon social issues far beyond the aactul medium. In short, I believe videogames are a dynamic and ever-growing element of our society, and it’s hard to ignore their presence.
On a side note, the blog’s origins are that it was actually founded as a postgraduate assignment, of which the topic then was discussions about ‘educational social media’ – imagine Facebook with an educational/academic focus. This is why when you look into the ‘Library’, ‘Useful Links’ and ‘Video Store’ tabs they bring up material and content relating to that topic. To read the latest posts, these will be located in the ‘Latest Blog Posts’ tab.
Since I have long graduated myself, what I learned previous was still very interesting so I’ve decided to keep all the content in case others were also interested. For all intents and purposes, we are now keeping it focused on videogames and technology. I hope you find the content as interesting and enjoyable as it was for me writing them.
