I have been craving an outlet for my voice on video games for some time. I already have The Film Tome where I can geek out on all things related to movies. I occasionally have a segment on AllMoPs entitled "Gamerain" where I highlight some choice video games (usually in terms of a review or a bit of news). Recently, I have become an officer (my official title being Online Steward) in a new club within BYU called VGAME. We have a blog for the club and part of my duties requires me to post thereon. Thus, one might find some overlap between what I post there and what I post here. However, there will be many-a-post exclusive to The Video Game Tome (mainly those including lengthy analyses, which may or may not be ripe for VGAME's purposes). Enough disclaim.

I am a definite gamer and quite passionate about the practice, not only as an excellent source of entertainment, but as an art form, a means of escape, an engaging social experience, and a therapeutic power. It is due to this love (which sometimes manifests itself as an obsession) for video games that I feel the call to start this blog, another tome.

I realize that I have four other blogs to my name and it would be wise to consider downsizing instead of starting yet another. Truth is, I am already not updating those near as much as I want to (though I have been posting a poem every day this month on euphrates). There is a lot to consider here, but all in all, who cares? I want to write more, so if that desire is strong enough, it will happen.

You can expect news, previews, reviews, and studies of video games here. I have a lot I want to say about these controversial marvels, it will be interesting for me to see if I can take the time to do it.


  1. Best of luck on this new project! Feel free to set up links to here on the VGAME blog if you so desire.
