    Are video games geeky by nature?

    I've been currently playing Uncharted and so far there hasn't been any supernatural elements to it (Although some one mentioned an Aztec Curse so that might be foreshadowing to things later). But I was curious if all reviews for video games on the podcast have to have Sci-Fi fantasy elements to it or if video games by their nature are geeky so they would count?

    For the purposes of the SBU podcast, ANY video games, even sports games, are welcome material for reviews. (I may draw the line at Barbie the video game.) Whether or not video games are geeky by nature is a great, broad question that I'll leave up for debate, though.

    5 years ago... maybe? Honestly ever since the Wii came out I don't think there's been a single demographic that's been left out. Games today have just about reached movies status on the geek scale; it's not geeky to enjoy, but if you memorize minutia then you're geeky.

    Awww. Just when I was ready to review that. Oh well, I'll delete my review and empty my trash can. There, done. tongue
