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.
Batman: Arkham Knight
Batman: Arkham Knight is the final entry in Rocksteady’s trilogy, and it might be the worst one. Returning to the series after a long hiatus, I felt lost, and the game didn’t so much to re-familiarize me with the deep combat controls. The game is filled to the brim with unnecessary gadgets that are more of a pain than cool or fun the few times they’re used. And then there’s the Batmobile. It’s great on paper, but the tank controls and combat sections are so boring compared to the melee combat that I grew tired of them quickly. At least when it comes to fisticuffs the game is still as fun as ever.
