About Astro Adam

Wait! What’s that up in the sky? Is it a comet? Is it uh… a planet?


It’s the Video Game Nebula famed for its Mountain Dew green and orange Doritos colours.

Come with me as I fly a spaceship towards this nebula. Who am I? A mild-mannered clerk by day, I’ve become a video game astronaut who explores strange new worlds by night.

Together, we’ll navigate past crazy comets, awful asteroids, and pusillanimous puffs of gas and dust. When we arrive near the nebula, we will explore video games in ways you never thought possible. I write about video games differently from other blogs: you won’t see the usual reviews and previews. Instead, I plan to add much-needed creative writing, humour and silliness. My child-like sense of wonder and my enthusiasm for video games will be visible in the posts as well.

Together we can rule the universe. And if we can’t, this video game blog thing might be okay too.

    • I used to suck at video games too when I was a kid. These days, though, there are so many different genres in video games for all kinds of people. You don’t have to be great to enjoy a point & click adventure game.

      Keep trying and I bet you’ll find some video games that suit you.
