Old Blog Page Directory – Articles

As I said last week, this week I will complete the catalog of my old blog page content by providing an easy to use list of all the non-review articles I ever published on my blog. While many of these posts are about dated topics, most of the points are still important to think about in the current gaming climate. Many of the topics addressed are about issues that the gaming community and industry are struggling with right now such as DLC and disappointing development practices. I don’t think any of the topics discussed in these articles are necessarily past being relevant for discussion and I’m happy to and hoping that the discourse continues so feel free to post comments right here on this page with reference to specific articles from the list and I’d be happy to answer them.

As with my reviews, many of my articles were published on other websites and then referenced through preview posts on my blog. In order to make it more convenient for my readers, I have again opted to make the links in this list go directly to the actual article posts rather than to my original blog posts which will ultimately lead to those other links anyway.

This concludes my catalog of all the content I’ve written on my original blog page since it’s beginning in 2013 to now. Next week I will officially start this blog with new written content. I apologize for the long winded introduction, but I felt that all this information was important for my new readers to be given a chance to get to know what sorts of content to expect as well as my perspective on key issues in gaming and my general writing style. Thanks for sticking it out.
