Citizen Gamer at MSNBC.com

JayWinda Benedetti writes the Citizen Gamer column for MSNBC.com, and she just published two articles today that you may find good reads...

Some of the information gathered for the column came during a phone conversation Winda and I had recently, and it was a pleasure chatting with her about something we are so passionate about here. Our sincere thanks go out to Winda and the kind people at MSNBC.com for helping to shine a little light on our love, as well as on our own little corner of the Web! :)

I was interested to know what Top 5 games you had recommended until I saw that I had to install a "widget". Would someone mind listing them here?

And, congrats on the positive exposure dude, you earned it.

Bravo!! This is by far one of my favourite sites... good games, straight to the point, a light and soft tone in writing and a very friendly community. I wish there were more sites like this.

You all set the bar high, and do an exceptional job. You deserve the recognition.

Great game recomendations Jay. I've been coming to the site for ages and it's been great to see how the site has grown so rapidly yet still finds top quality games, so thanks for all you've done.

I actually still have winterbells bookmarked and always go back to it if I want to play something.

I also read the Wii Music article and learned this women loves cowbells. maybe we should review a cowbell game for her.

However the games were chosen, I was glad to see Flow on the list! What a fun and amazing game! I also liked the additional games listed at the end, and that Knytt was one of those listed. I've known about these games since they were first posted here, but I'm glad they're getting even more publicity through msnbc.com. I'm already in the process of linking the article to some family members who might enjoy it - and hopefully the games too!

Yeah, apparently the solution is more cowbell.

...

What? You set up the shot, I fire my lazers into the exhaust port and blow up the Death Star.

I'm so glad you mentioned Samorost (and I'm so glad she pictured it). It's the game that first brought me to JIG. I think it's the ultimate expression of what we love--art, game, entertainment, story, "cuteness"--the Samorost games have it all.

Nice story, Jay! Kudos!

Crossy Road> Dora Endless arcade action meets classic Frogger style gameplay in this free iOS game where you control a series of hapless unlockable creatures trying to cross some very busy and very deadly roads and rapids. With a sense of humor and vibrant voxel graphics, it's both charming and hard to put down.  ...
Find the Escape-Men Part 126: The Special Property> Dora The apartment in this escape game's rent is suspiciously low, and there's a weird smell here too... so it's probably not a good sign your realtor has locked you inside! Experience a whole lot of weirdness (and a jump scare or two) in this very silly game from no1game.  ...
