“Halo 3 came out in November. I got my mother to buy it for me on the very day it was released. I had a lot of fun playing it while drinking the special mountain dew flavor that was released with the game; Mountain Dew Game Fuel, it was called. The game definitely lived up to its expectations, and to my surprise I found myself playing it more than WoW for the first couple of weeks.”
“I thought to myself, 'if tabletop RPGs were simpler, I might actually buy and play them.'”
“The Gears of War are turning... You have 2 choices; Either move out of the way, or be Crushed by our Might.”

“Ashton Hamid hated hiking. He hated the woods. Hated the whole insistence on “real life experiences” and “survival” and “nature” in general. He took another step, wincing as the blister on his heel throbbed. THIS is why I prefer V.R.! The trees grew close together here, and the trail on which he and Vale hiked wove in and out of them like a ribbon. He squinted into the forest. If Vale wasn’t leading, he’d have no idea where to go. The trail was little more than a muddy path.”
“Ash bumped her shoulder. 'Hey, Vale. I got a joke for you.'
She smiled. 'Okay.'
'What do you do when the world champion of Scrolls of the Illuminati knocks on your door?'
'I…' Vale giggled. 'I have no idea.'
'You say ‘well done, sir!’ then pay the man for the pizza!'
Ash cracked up at his own joke and a moment later, Vale began to laugh too. For a few seconds, it felt like everything was normal again.”

“My guild decided to advance to a more complicated part of the game, which moved me from gaming hobbyist to full-time addicted employee of World of Warcraft.”
“Dungeons & Dragons was like that. Forget that half the kids in school probably went around slaying dragons and stashing loot on their PlayStations or iPads. It's different when you actually have to roll the dice.”

“After making all the mistakes, every player has a chance to turn the outcome of the game around by making the right moves next.”
“'Disengage,' she whispered, pulling the red tab on her wristband. Immediately Avery’s weapons were rendered inactive and she became invisible to everyone in the augmented reality game, able to do nothing except walk back to the staging room until she reactivated. It was like she wasn’t even there, like she’d suddenly erased herself. Which was exactly how she felt.”
“A group of adventurers is known as a 'party,' and not just because they like to celebrate their success together in the end. Your party should be as close to you as your family--assuming your family can cast spells, kill monsters, and bring you back from the edge of death.”
