This was a fun read. Its like the conversations you have with your friends. You'll find yourself say 'Oh yeah! I remember that!" often. He talks about the more common games that we gamers play so its easy to relate. Any games that he talks about that you haven't played makes you want to! We ended up going out and buying Fallout 3 right afterward. It was really refreshing to hear someone appreciate the world of games, the place they take you. The only negative thing I have to say is that it gets a little repetitive; describing every game 'beautiful and amazing'.
