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.
The best time of year for my girlfriend and I is when fall weather rolls around and leads up to our favorite holiday: Halloween. This season, we decided to play as many spooky games as possible and started with The Evil Within of yesteryear. I’m not a huge fan of survival horror games, but The Evil Within is a fun and unsettling adventure, even if it makes literally no sense. I blame the Japanese developers for that. The Evil Within has some truly horrible monsters, but the gameplay can be clunky and frustrating at times. Still, we’re getting what we want out of it: the creeps.
