    How far away is gaming from becoming mainstream?

    The last several years have seen a major explosion of popularity for competitive gaming, with games like League of Legends, Fortnite, Counter Strike:GO to name a few. Millions are poured into this industry as it is a new market and it seems to be a good enough investment that the Houston Rockets (NBA Team) have a LoL team in North America. As competitive gaming continues to grow and tap into new potential, will competitive gaming be mainstream or will it remain in its own sphere.

    • I really think the main focus here is Fortnite. League, PUBG, Dota, and others are popular, but Fortnite is a phenomenon. I can't remember any game being this huge, and, if gaming does become mainstream, I think Fortnite will have a major hand in it. A focus on breaking down Fortnite's success might be a really interesting angle on this. – elijahoates 2 months ago

    What is the Purpose of Dystopian Literature?

    Personally I find it extremely difficult to watch anime dubbed, it just kinda sounds silly to me and I cant get into it, this is especially true if I have already heard the subbed version. This is true for every anime I have watched, I feel like the Japanese languages adds a sort of authenticity that English does not.

    Are you a Sub or a Dub?

    I think it’s truly amazing to see how far cinematography has come in general, in addition to superheros going from nerdy and unpopular, to the most popular franchise in the present day.
