Here’s what’s going on Talk Among Yourselves, our reader-written blog: Dear Video Game Expert—Marsh Naylor's column that answers your burning questions in most humorous fashion—takes on swimming and Red Dead Redemption. JJtheTexan's lost-games-of-Nintendo survey dives deep into the pool of Game Boy one-offs that very few people remember. NotGoodForYou offers up an opinion piece about why Splinter Cell: Blacklist may not work. And Patrick Allan writes a touching essay about why getting a new game can matter so much.

And you can always go join the voices talking about video games and life in TAY Classic and in the TAY: Open Forum.
