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.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain might be lacking in the story department, but it sure makes up for it in the gameplay. Plus, there’s Quiet, and I don’t care what anyone says; she’s an awesome character I’m glad Kojima included. I wrote more about this for the column I write for the daily paper I work at. You can read my thoughts over there.
