I had not expected WALK, LOOK, TALK, ASK, PICKUP, GABRIEL to be anything but my own personal video game journal, though some interest was shown by outside readers. Nonetheless, some aspects of its essence seemed to appeal to others, and because of this, I am thankful. I wish I could play and write about video games much more than I have (or do). Unfortunately, there are only 168 hours in a week, and the time has come to say goodbye to this blog. I am on to new and better things – and in my estimation, more substantive – and I must put my time into these others activities, and sacrifice something. This blog is such a sacrifice.
I hope you all enjoyed yourselves. Keep playing games. Keep thinking about what makes games special. Keep analyzing everything. And don’t ever believe that games are just silly nonsense for children. They are not.
