Bookmark this site, too: 101videogames.

You know how I said, a few posts ago, that I spent a good chunk of last weekend surfing the web? Well, some of that time was spent perusing (aka "101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better").

Why isn't this blog devoted to discussing, say, the 101 best video games of all time? According to its authors, such lists are often dreadfully dull. Plus, they say, "there’s plenty of entertainment to be had away from the recognised canon of ‘top games.'"

As such, the games that have been and will be written about on 101videogames.wordpress. com are those "that raised an involuntary smile, that inspired unexplainable devotion, that made us laugh out loud… in other words, [they're] games that made our lives slightly better."

I like that premise so much that, starting early next week, I'm going to pen a series of posts about "10 video games that made my life gayer" (with "gayer" being used in the old-fashioned sense, as in happier or merrier).

Ha! Yes, Nuts, I try to use the old/alternate meaning of 'gay' whenever possible. You know, just to mess with people now and then :)

Oh, and no need to be sorry about your English -- I can understand you perfectly!

Thanks for the post, we look forward to reading '10 Games That Made My Life Gayer'!

Yes, Justin, take a peek when you have a chance. It's definitely not your typical "best games ever" kind of list, which I think is a *great* thing!

Thanks Lewis! I'm not so sure my posts will hold a candle to yours, but I'll do my best. Also, keep up the good work on your blog!
