“[Tea Party Republican] O’Donnell might have done better in that debate had she played a few more games.” I detect a Sassy Gaymer Friend spinoff.

What is ‘radical’ for games?

…And well, I wanted to link a design argument post here, but I can’t find it in my bookmarks now. So have the link I linked instead, which really should’ve been recced anyway as it’s own thing: “X is not a game.”

Zachary Quinto plays Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock.
