Quick little ditty: My computer erased my Growing Up Gamer article. It will be coming soonish, but for now I’m just going to cut my losses and move on.
Below is my diagnostic essay for my advanced writing class. It attempts to answer the question, “Why are people drawn to art?” Even though I talk about a broad range of art forms, I of course always have video games at the forefront of my thoughts. In fact, while reading, keep in mind that for mainstream/popular media, you can use the example of God of War or Halo. For art that challenges the masses and the artists themselves, think no further than Heavy Rain.
It’s also one of the four best papers in the class and will hopefully get a top 2 spot this Wednesday when we pit all four papers against each other. But hey, I’m cool with being in the top 4!
More on the process that went into writing this is over on the sister site Blithely Yours.
