Video Game Haikus

I am a firm believer in games as an art form.  Since I’m a bit of a poet myself, I feel like I should know.  Actually, I’m being modest.  I’m approximately the fifth best poet in the United States, and have been compared to greats like William Wordsworth, William Blake and DJ Jazzy Jeff.  Some call me the songbird of my generation, but I don’t do this for the accolades.  Nay!  I create this art because I must.  Because I must…

A frequent Top 10 list writer and uber SNES fan, Blake can still to this day be found playing Final Fantasy VI on occasion, even though it is probably bad for his health at this point (we’re not sure he knows there are actually other games out there). When not writing, editing or gaming, Blake enjoys bothering people with his guitar, drinking more than is safe and talking about this totally crazy weather. Blake is also very involved in the Game Informer community, has a sick Minecraft world he would love to show you.
