The Joy of Writing
Throughout my career, I wanted to always be creative. I always wanted to change the game in something — anything. In order to do that, you need to learn what your strengths and weaknesses are, and how to exploit them. In order to do that, you need to figure out what you do well and rock that to your core.
It took me a long time to realize what I liked doing. There are many things I like to do, but writing about games is my favorite. It’s the one thing that has always brought joy to me. And in order to get back to what I love doing, I needed to reinvent my website, yet again, to make that a reality. So, here I am, on my own, doing just that.
This website will be my place to formulate thoughts on my love of video games. Opinions, news, and general hype for everything that happens in the video game realm.
So, who the hell am I? My name is Jason Bassett, but I go by Bassett, Bass, JB, or whatever you like to call me. You can even call me asshole and I will probably respond in some sort of way. Many people ask me what video game I like and I usually say something like: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, or Final Fantasy XIV: Online. It’s always hard to really convey which game is my favorite, because, all of these games have been a way for me to break from the harsh realities of life and escape in some of my favorite fantasy worlds.
I love stories in games and all three of these games have some degree of story that just sucks me into their worlds. Whether being the hallowed “Warrior of Light of Eorzea” in Final Fantasy XIV to infiltrating the Russian military factory of Metal Gear Solid 3. These games always gave me some degree of wonder and excitement.
I’m also a champion of good gameplay mechanics. Some of which are unparalleled in Breath of the Wild (BOTW) and when it comes to gameplay in games, BOTW always wins out as one of the deepest in the industry. In the future articles, I will discuss why, Breath of the Wild, has some of the best video game mechanics.
From here on out I will be posting about the game industry in some way or form, because that’s what I do best. It’s something that I love to do and it only took me 35 years to realize it.
