Great article. It was really touching reading about the guy who lost his fingers in a work accident, assuming his gaming days were over, and started crying when he discovered there was a one-handed controller out there. So many of us take the ability to play video games for granted.

Video games have been a HUGE part of my life for as long as I can remember (probably even longer!). Every kid deserves a chance to interact with this amazing medium – one that allows them to be anything they want to be and explore new worlds they could only dream about.

This article has certainly raised my awareness about these issues and I’m planning to volunteer my time in any way I can with some of the organizations mentioned in the article.

The pricing is definitely too expensive, there’s no doubt about that. However, I wouldn’t mind seeing both a subscription option and a rental option in the future. I’ve been a PS+ subscriber for the last few years and have amassed a very large library of PS3 titles (also, I have no will power when it comes to buying new games!). My backlog of PS3 games is huge because I simply do not have enough time to play these older games, especially when I continue to buy and play the new releases on PS4. It would be great to have unlimited access to a large number of PS3 games, but I really don’t see myself having the time to play enough games every month to justify the monthly subscription fee. If, on the other hand, I get in the mood to try out an old PS3 game (or PS1/2), renting it digitally is a great option. Of course, the price needs to be reasonable, which is not the case at the moment.

The Last of Us. I was all aboard that hype train from the moment it was announced. The fact that it was a Naughty Dog game instantly put it on my radar, but then the E3 gameplay demo a year before it was released put it firmly in the oh-my-god-this-will-be-flawless territory for me. I’m a sucker for beautifully rendered environments that encourage exploration for the sake of taking it all in and just living in the world, not just for the sake of collectibles or trophies. I knew from that moment this would be one of the best games I would ever play, and it still wasn’t coming out for another year! I was obviously a little irrational in my level of hype for the game, but the end result was even better than I expected. Specifically, I was pleasantly surprised by the weighty, emotional story that was being told by the same group of people who made the Uncharted series. The stealth mechanics, although criticized by many, were really enjoyable and the story was perfect (from the amazing opening moments all the way to the very last scene). Also, all the characters you meet along the way (Bill in particular) and Winter!! Such an amazing game.
