I am a graduating senior at Tufts University, majoring in economics and passionate about video games. I find games as a medium and business to be interesting and intriguing, and this blog is my platform for sharing my thoughts about it.
This blog has two main aspects to it. I mostly analyze current events in the industry with an economic perspective, but I also examine game design choices as they affect the medium. Video games are an art form, and they deserve to be analyzed, evaluated, and critiqued in much the same way we treat literature and film. When examining contentious issues, I try to do so from a consumer standpoint, since I rarely see those arguments being made in publications.
In the past, I was a contributor to Project Crystallis, an organization that advocated the localization of Final Fantasy Type-0 and promoting Final Fantasy Versus XIII (now renamed XV). I wrote there under the pen name ‘Neku’. Articles I wrote for this purpose are reblogged here under the category ‘Proj. Crystallis Contributions’.
Should you wish to get in touch with me, I have a contact form just to the right of the “About Me and this Blog” page.
