Game Over

July 8, 2004

At first I wasn’t sure if I liked Chris Morris. The first column of his I read seemed like he was one of those market analysts that like to make lofty claims about our industry only to be way off the mark. I have recently discovered that my first impression of him was in fact way off the mark. Chris’ articles address many of the issues that we often ignore because he is writing to a different audience. He writes for CNN Money and so I guess you can figure out his target audience. Regardless, I suggest you all check out his column “Game Over” on a very frequent basis.

His most recent column was about a study trying to link childhood obesity to playing video games. Instead of the typical viewpoint that makes you slap your forehead, Chris says exactly what the rest of us are thinking and really makes some good points. Chris’ articles tend to spread through the gaming world very quickly so many of you have already read it, but if you haven’t you can check it out here.
