How to Get a Stubborn Gamer Out of Their Comfort Zone

I’ve never been big on card games or tabletop games. I prefer my games in digital format and have as long as I can remember playing anything at all. I even skipped out on the "Pokemon" TCG even when it was wildly popular; I stuck with my Nano Baby instead (heresy, I know). It started with my parents playing "Super Mario Brothers" on the NES with me, and that’s how it’s been ever since. Read more »

The Original MMO Returns

The first MMORPG I ever played was "Everquest." I was in middle school at the time, and my first character was a gnome warrior named "Allondo." It was a bizarre combination, but I loved the idea of a tiny, tinkering warrior rushing into battle against all sorts of larger foes. That game basically consumed my life for years after. I would wake up early in the morning, skip Saturday morning cartoons, and power through Crushbone Keep, the Estate of Unrest, and Kithicor Forest. The game seemed so unbelievably huge, and I was playing with real people from all over the world. That made every single time I logged in seem new. Read more »

The main focus of Player Theory is the games. We read about them, we play them, we write about them, and then we really hope that you read what we think. The world of video games isn't something that just encompasses the virtual - it's become somewhat of a culture in and of itself. In the physical world, that culture mostly takes the form of geeky t-shirts, and occasionally for the particularly enthusiastic, a tattoo. For some people, though, a video game can be a driving, creative force that inspires them to not just play the game, but take what they see and what they like and actually try their hand at creating it in real life. Anyone that's been to a comic or game convention can attest to the sheer amazingness of some these creations. Read more »

Android: Netrunner

The future has already arrived. It's just not evenly distributed yet.

We live in an interesting, frightening, and paranoid time. With the whole NSA PRISM thing going on and the government and corporations watching our every move, it really does feel like we're spiraling into a sci-fi dystopian future where shadowy figures above us force their unsavory agendas and the only secrets we have are the ones that we don't think about.

The Final Days of the "Liege" Kickstarter

The fantasy RPG market today is dominated by huge titles and super realistic graphics. It's hard to remember a time when 16-bit graphics ruled the genre and, despite all the nostalgia most of us share with the time, it's probably even harder to imagine that look ever coming back. That is why I was blown away when the Kickstarter for "Liege" was brought to my attention. Read more »
