Introducing The Short
If brevity is the soul of wit, then The Short has cast soultrap all over wit, because this is where the short things live.
I get it. You love reading about videogames, but sometimes you don’t have the patience to sit through a whole, lengthy article. The Long, after all, is where our writers go to great lengths to delve into the secret joys and shames of their gaming lives. Maybe you’re just too busy to read about the gender politics of Street Fighter or the complicated paternal implications of Big Boss in the Metal Gear series right now.
Actually, hold on a second. I need to write these ideas down.
Here, in The Short, we’re more concerned with the present and what important things are happening within it right now. We want to isolate a moment in the world of videogames and expand on it; identify and start a discussion around it before it’s gone. It may be an incredible new indie game that we’re certain you have to see or an issue that has arisen in the culture that has ruffled some feathers. Either way, we want to highlight and make sure you see it.
These won’t be your basic news updates either. There are no simplistic, sensationalist, headline-seeking posts here. No, sir. Rather, The Short is fully-formed concepts delivered by our fantastic writers, who are earnestly looking to educate or illuminate you while wasting as little of your time as possible. Because time is money and we’re in a recession. That’s just good sense.
Thanks for tuning in.
