Earthquakes are great and terrible forces, destroying homes, claiming lives, and reminding humanity as a whole that this planet we crawl across isn't as solid as it seems. The east coast of the U.S. found that out today. For the rest of us, there are video games.
While the rest of Kotaku's east coast crew were being evacuated during today's earthquake, down here in Atlanta the ground didn't budge. I was relieved, of course, but also a bit disappointed. I've never experienced an earthquake myself, and while that's a good thing, I can't help but be curious.
