Dear Mario: Thanks For Everything

Community Writer Paul Alexander: One of items I sacrificed when I entered the game design program at The Savannah College of Art and Design's Atlanta campus this past year was financial security. In fact, I traded a well-paying job and a comfortable lifestyle for an uncertain future and a constant scramble to fulfill my financial and academic obligations. It’s exhausting work, and I do have moments where I question my choices. I miss my friends and my old life. I used to go to parties. I used to stay up late doing things besides working and worrying.

And you know what? It’s all that ****ing little plumber’s fault. He’s the reason I played my first video game and the reason I decided I’d try and make them myself. For better and for worse, for richer and for (much) poorer, our destinies have been intertwined for most of my life.

The story is too old to be commented.
