Guest column on video game portfolios

My friend Kevin, who gave up his childhood dream of becoming a con artist to pursue an MBA, has started a video game essay and review site called Retro Tavern with some people I don't know and would be able to pick out of a lineup.

I've written a guest post on video game economics for the site, combining some ideas on scarcity and resource management with choosing which video games to buy and play.

In retrospect, a better title would have been "Why I don't play Skyrim" to show that my rule of budgeting game time, instead of just buying games because I like them, applies to a game that is said to be so good it threatens to damage the US Economy with lost work time.


  1. My essay of "Why I Don't Play Skyrim" would be so much shorter than yours:

    "Giant spiders scare the crap out of me."
