The Worst Filing System Known To Humans
Reload the Canons!
This series of articles is an attempt to play through The Canon of videogames: your Metroids, your Marios, your Zeldas, your Pokemons, that kind of thing.
Except I'm not playing the original games. Instead, I'm playing only remakes, remixes, and weird fan projects. This is the canon of games as seen through the eyes of fans, and I'm going to treat fan games as what they are: legitimate works of art in their own right that deserve our analysis and respect.

On Hiatus for NCUR!
For your amusement while I'm gone, here's a fairly strong list of Things You Ought To Be Reading. I would even consider some of them--Extra Credits and FILM CRIT HULK in particular--to be required reading on the same level as Foucault, Saussure, or McCloud. Have at thee:
FILM CRIT HULK: http://badassdigest.com/author/67
Extra Credits: http://www.penny-arcade.com/patv/show/extra-credits
Son of Danse Macabre: http://sonofdansemacabre.blogspot.com/
Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5782108/1/Harry_Potter_and_the_Methods_of_Rationality
Open Culture: http://www.openculture.com/
This should tide you over in my regrettable absence. Enjoy the use of your chair while you can.
Trust me, it won't last.
