When I heard about the videogaming class was being offered I thought it might be easy. I thought to myself, "what the heck, I need the credits anyway." I was sadly mistaken. Since this class started I have been working on homework longer than I ever had before. I get up at 8am and I don't get done until 1am, however I do take breaks here and there. This class is fun and I feel like I am learning so much about gaming.

Blogging has become a major part of my life and I actually enjoy it. Thus far this class has opened my eyes to how important gaming is to our culture. I have begun to understand the mind of a gamer because I am becoming one.One website that I am getting very familiar with is G4TV. I could spend hours on this site because it is the epitome of the gaming world.

I feel that in this class I am begining to understand why gamer do the things they do. Also I am learning a lot about my writing and opinions. I have found that can be very creative with it but I need to be more subjective; this isn't an English class. I am excited to start the essay because I feel this is where I can show what I truely have learned in this class. I have found so much information on Asteroids that I never thought existed. I never knew that Wikipedia had a whole section devoted to the game.

Another thing that I am learning is that there are so many different types of games. I have come to discover that I am not fond of IF games because it is just too complicated for my simple mind. Overall I feel that I am learning so much from this class and I know that within the next week I will learn even more.

The Sex Rez Vibrator link here is misdirected. It sends me to the class page for "My Trip to Liberty City." Just an fyi.

I went through and the same link is placed under the following pages "A Rape in Cyberspace" "Work and Fun with Adventure" "SK3D" "Sliding Doors" "Interactive Fiction" "New Games Journalism." Not sure what happened.

Really? That's strange, Leslie, I just tried several of those links, and they seemed to go to the right pages. Maybe Kayla fixed it?

After Leslie made me aware of the problem I immediately fixed them. Thank you Leslie.
