Games And here I am, a week later. The Xbox home screen is patiently waiting for input, and as I put the controller down, my eyes drift towards the left, towards the closet where I keep my Xbox games, ordered according to which I find the best. Out of excitement, I had put the Mass Effect 2 box in the prime position when I bought it, but now that I've finished the game, I can't help but take it down a few pegs - behind Mass Effect 1, behind Dragon Age, but just above Fallout 3. I find it hard to admit, but Mass Effect 2 failed to meet my (admittedly) insanely high expectations.

I remember the good ol’ days—when this site was worth something and discussed the future of computing. Now, video game reviews? Wow.

Just to note, Ars Technica -- which I'd hold up as the shining example of tech journalism on the Web -- also does game reviews. I don't really see what's so objectionable about it. Many technical professionals -- at least, in my generation, I suspect -- are also avid gamers, so this is content that's of interest to what I'd guess is the primary demographic the site's going after.

Unfortunately. I guess everybody assumes that just because you're interested in tech, then you must, by extension, be interested in video games as well. Maybe they should also do porn reviews here too ...
