  4. Ever Wonder What It Feels Like To Be A Geek? This Magic: The Gathering Collector Gives You A Taste

    I often get asked what makes me a geek. My usual response? Intense passion for something. So yes, "being a geek" to me isn't necessarily relegated to the genre medium of comic books, video games, etc. People who get really excited over sports are no different than people who get really excited about a collectable statue. And collectors, well they're tangentially connected. Not all collectors do it for the money but when a huge score falls on your lap, it's hard not to get really excited.

  8. Video Gaming Has a Problem With Jumping Realism, and It’s Mario’s Fault

    Don't try this at home.

    Humans as a species are not actually very good at jumping, but you wouldn't know that if you looked at video games. And not just platformers, either; even the most realism-driven games sometimes allow players to bounce off the walls like it ain't no thing.  So why is this such a pervasive mechanic?
