Are computer games entertainment or art or both? Is it all about fun or education? If people need to be super cool, all guns blazing killing machines where does the story fit? Is it just plain fun or brain sickness to virtually decapitate, kill, annihilate etc. moving things with a great deal of satisfaction in the process? And what about people that ask questions first? Do we expect too much from a business sector that started with… Pong? Why should computer games feel the gap that the film industry so shamefully left?

Dunno but I am really enjoying Oblivion nowadays because it is “open” enough to shape the character the way I want. You can play it in mature ways or not, you can twist it, turn it upside down, everything you want, you just live in it… for me you can’t get more mature than just living…
Current favorites...

Games: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, World of Warcraft
Music: Laurent Garnier - Restrospective, Squarepusher - Hello Everything
Movies: Terry Gilliam - Tideland
