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.
