Ever since I was little I was always way more excited about games than almost anything else. Movies were kind of cool but I could take them or leave them. No matter how good the movie is, it always feels like you're on the outside looking in. Books can probably match the level of excitement I feel for games, though the time in between books can become exhausting. Regardless though, it's hard to match the feeling of falling into a really good book. Unlike with movies, it feels as though you can actually walk around the world and experience everything. However, games have always held a special place in my heart and it's certainly a large part of the reason why I wanted to go into game design. With games, you are actually exploring the world on your own and can change the flow of certain events. When Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out I thought the game looked interesting though nothing particularly amazing. I really liked the concept in general, about human augmentation and the resistance that would inevitably follow such a drastic change in humanity. However, I wasn't really going to play the game because I probably wasn't going to buy it. I don't pirate games, I have a lot of reasons for that of which I won't get into here other than perhaps to say there's no valid excuse to pirate games.
