Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
I reviewed Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for GazetteXtra. Read the whole thing here. One thing I don’t mention in my review is multiplayer, which I’m happy to report worked day one and looks absolutely stunning in 60 frames per second and 1080p with completely remastered levels. I can’t believe how much I’m enjoying it when I’ve basically outgrown multiplayer games in the past few years.
