Go there now.
I grew up wanting to be a game developer, only realizing later that I was in love with storytelling and had no idea what game making actually meant. Understanding Games is a series of short little flash games by someone who knows what they are talking about. This helped me understand why though the SNES had some beautiful games, most of them are variations on mario or the dragon quest\final fantasy. While N64 had far better games with genres of design that were completely revolutionized, (see Mario 64, Goldeneye, Super Smash, Legend of Zelda). If you don't still understand the draw of video games, Understanding Games will chainsaw your skull open to understand what how amazing it is that someone found out how to market work to people as something that is fun. Do you understand that people avoid doing actual work to do virtual work? Why is that? Well click it and find out.
