About the Musings

Much of what’s on this site are my own musings on various things related to the hobby of gaming.  They’re meant to promote discussion, whether dissent or agreement.  Either is fine and equally hoped-for, since at the end of the day I strive for critical thinking in my thoughts and musings on the world of gaming.

I believe critical thinking is important for numerous reasons, not the least of which is one can hardly call themself a “critic” if they don’t “think critically”.  As for what critical thinking actually means, well, there’s a short definition over at the site appropriately named Critical Thinking:

Critical thinking is the identification and evaluation of evidence to guide decision making. A critical thinker uses broad in-depth analysis of evidence to make decisions and communicate his/her beliefs clearly and accurately.

For a more in-depth analysis of the topic as well as many topics related to it, see this Stanford dissertation on the subject of “informal logic”.  A very long read, but worth it.

That definition of critical thinking is what I bring with my musings.  They’re an attempt to display something either that one may not have thought about before, or perhaps from a different angle, or whatever else along similar lines.  Even the small blurbs I give with the Tuesday’s Top Ten or the Friday Flashback Five strive to be at least somewhat informative and provoking discussion.  That is the goal—to help promote discussion about gaming, in whatever facet we enjoy it, to whatever degree we enjoy it.
