Eric Kravcik is a recent English graduate facing an economy many of his elders say he should be terrified of.  Horror stories aside, he initially enrolled in the Computer Science field and it took him three years to find out he didn’t like writing code before switching to the aforementioned field of study.  He believes we are at a very interesting moment in video game history where a rift is forming between the big budget titles, casual audiences and the independent scene.  While searching for a stable career he takes time to enjoy this new shift in the industry and can’t help but be excited for the future.

Seeing Through the Eyes of a God of War
