Then again, maybe you are waiting. Feeling stuck. If that is you, then here is what you can do in the meantime.

Check back each week for more video game quotes about life and leadership!

Who is Your Player 2? Part 1 – Fellow Traveler

who is your player 2 part 1

Some of my very best memories of gaming (and current fun as well) involve other players. There was something really special about the multiplayer games of the 80’s and 90’s. To start with, all the players had to be in the same room, usually using the same TV screen to play.

The Blockbuster World Championship and the Importance of a Plan B

I am taking you down a trip on memory lane – let’s go all the way back to the Summer of 1994.

Do you remember the movie The Wizard? The one where Fred Savage competes in a video game competition and Super Mario Bros 3 was unveiled? Well, the Blockbuster World Championship was pretty much the same thing…
