I’m really excited and looking forward to broadening my perspectives about media and culture.
I’ve been swotting up already and came across a brilliant quote from an influential games academic that makes me feel as though I’ve made the right choice:
“In our world of radically and unpredictably changing environments, an evolutionary potential for creative responses requires that organisms possess an opposite set of characteristics usually devalued in our culture: sloppiness, broad potential, quirkiness, unpredictability, and above all, massive redundancy.”
Rockstar provided the later and through years of intensive training I’ve mastered the former. The other qualities I hope will be nurtured by the traditional twin pillars of University: learnéd professors, and massive intake of alcohol.
