Decisions, DecisionsPosted on April 7th, 2005 No comments
I’m having a hard time deciding what I want my blog to focus on. I thought at first it would just be a hodge podge of whatever I wanted to rant about. Now, I’m thinking I want to focus on just one area. I can’t decide what area that should be, though.
Politics. I’m always thinking and reading about politics and political issues. Man is a political creature.
Video Games. The video game industry is very intriguing. Started by a bunch of hackers and engineering students in dark campus basements, in my lifetime it has grown in a multi-billion dollar industry. Right now, in the video game industry there seems to be a constant battle between those who are most like the original game designers. People who desire interesting gameplay, fascinating stories, and visual masterpieces that are some of the best video games made. (Half-Life 2, Katamari Damacy, Knights of the Old Republic) Set against the heroes of the industry are a hardened cabal of marketing people that subscribe to the view “game design for profit, not necessarily fun”. EA being the prime example.
So, I guess I should decide what subject I want to focus on.
Or maybe I just won’t focus on either, yet. Maybe I’m not ready to make that decision.
In the meantime I think I’m going to switch web hosts. The current web host seems to be completely unable to allow outgoing trackback pings from Movable Type. There’s all sorts of posts I would like to trackback and comment on, but I can’t because the tech support guys at my company just can’t quite figure things out. They’ve been working on it for like 3 months. Well, sorry guys. Time to say buh-bye to you.
