I will be hopefully better at writing and will be better at getting my ideas on paper. I also want to be able to creatively explore my ideas more and hopefully, create a better reading experience.

It will also allow me to expand my horizons a bit.

A few weeks ago, several different sites poped up with articles about how the identity of "the gamer" is dead, or how they are no longer relevant to games or the communities. Several people spoke out against these articles, and a continuing argument or "war" is happening over twitter at the hash tag #GamerGate 
I've been working at Kotaku for nearly eight years now, and while I've seen some online kerfuffles over various issues in that time, I've never seen anything like the past two weeks.

I will be looking at how Video games have been treated as a form of media over the years, and the impact they have had on other forms of media and on themselves. I specifically want to look at Moral Panics inside the industry, and the impact they have inside and outside of gaming.
