As a games blogger, the question I am most often asked is: 'When are you going to go back to school so that you can get a real job, like an accountant or a doctor?' To which I reply: 'Look, Mum, Dad, writing about videogames is a real job now. I've paid my rent unaided for at least several years.' Then I show them games like Surgeon Simulator 2013
and ask why I would want to be a real anything, when I can be a simulated everything?
Yeah, that's my philosophy degree talking. Paying for itself, right there.
