Think now, how many hours a day to you devote to video games? Has there ever been a time where you sacrificed something else just in order to play video games? The Only Thing I Know is a flash that lays out in plain simple, and maybe a bit harsh, words about the real effects of harmful amounts of video game playing. It is narrated by a man who has experienced the consequences of excess video game playing himself and sends out a message to the general public about the effects this has on society.
He reveals both the bad side of video games as well as the good side to it. The bad side being sacrificing human interaction and other potential adventures you could have besides playing a game with no value. The good side he shows us is how gaming has brought people together, such as conventions and community based groups. This aspect of gaming has a positive impact on society due to the increased socializing.
As for the actual flash itself, it was very well done. The graphics were simple and the props used were very relevant to the message he was conveying. The music played was from, I believe, the movie Avatar. He incorporates both the sad music and happy music well with the tone of the flash as it progresses.
Thank you Brian Schmoyer for creating such an eye-opening flash.
PS- He really takes the game "Burning Crusades" to a whole new level :D
