Here’s what’s going on Talk Among Yourselves, our reader-written blog: DocSeuss asks the big, perennial question "What Are Video Games?" It's a rambling but entertaining answer. Isaac Davis writes a Last-Gen Hero essay about the kinds of rewards that turn a game into something deeper and richer. And Aestevalis sounds the Last-Gen Hero trumpet for the relatively obscure JRPG hybrid Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon .

Don't forget that you can always go join the voices talking about video games and life in TAY Classic and in the TAY: Open Forum.
