For the past two decades, I’ve met people in the streets who proudly state it to me.
For over twenty years, I’ve chatted with people on planes, trains, buses, and in automobiles who have chatted about it with me.
In every computer superstore and every computer outlet, gaming fans have argued and bragged about it.

Even now, you the reader are thinking the exact same thoughts:
“I have a concept for the most amazing and revolutionary game.”
“This game of mine will blow away every game that has ever been published.”
“I played the ‘hot game’ and with a few of my additions and real ‘cool’ puzzles or tricks, it could be so much better.”
