reno-jean-photo-xl-jean-reno-621-1.jpg I thought that for this week's column , which is my birthday week column since it is the week in which my birthday falls, I would rant a little bit about no-interaction games. I don't want any of those for my birthday.

Don't get your hopes up even though it is my birthday- "zee GAME" is not GAME Z. If it were, your minds would be blown like those of the developers and playtesters who have been deemed worthy of playing it. I'm not a shill, whether or not it is my birthday.

It's very important that when you read the words "zee GAME" in the article that you raise your hands into the air and adopt a ludicrious French accent. The guy I heard this from was Frenchier than the french fries I will probably eat at Sassy Sliders, in NYC, on my birthday.

Probably the best YouTube imbed of all time...the only thing that would be better is if Rowdy Roddy Piper wished me a personalized happy birthday greeting at the end of it.

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of FortressAT.com and Nohighscores.com as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
