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.
Halo 5: Guardians
I’ve yet to touch any of Halo 5: Guardians’ story because I’ve heard it’s crap, but what I’ve played of the multiplayer shows a lot of promise. Halo 4 didn’t keep players playing for long due to it’s more Call of Duty-like formula. Halo 5 has done away with that, keep starting loadouts the same for all and making matches an attempt to control the map and power weapons. It’s a fun formula, but it still doesn’t have that magic Halo 3 and Reach gave me. Maybe I’m just getting old. Still, I look forward to playing this game more and eventually running through the campaign with my girlfriend.
