I’m Chris Wagar. I write about video games regularly and this is a dumping ground for the various writings I’ve produced. I’ve written far more than I’ve ever published publicly, so expect posts here to be regular.
I have no accreditation, I am not well known, I am an authority only so far as you deem me knowledgeable. I just hope to make a fair case where I can and convince you should my words be true, because I trust that I can write well enough to communicate the truth and hope that you will accept a good argument as authority enough.
If you want examples of what I’m all about, and some of my best writing, read the following:
