Video Game PostSecret

PostSecret is a famous blog and ongoing community mail artproject in which people mail their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. Select secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website, or used for PostSecret’s books or museum exhibits.

Sometimes I wonder, (because I’m insane) if video game characters were to submit their innermost secrets to PostSecret, what sort of postcards would result?

Here’s my attempt to find out.

I came up with a great idea for PAX and I hope the bigwigs will take a break from polishing their monocles and eating sushi off of naked women to hear me out.  Wish me luck.  This might be my ticket out of this two-bit town.

(Note:  Either Tycho or Gabe linked to an article I wrote about a million years ago, causing the hit counter on it to explode and my editor to praise me.  Like an idiot, I thought I was a big deal and immediately started pestering them to collaborate on something via repeated emails.  Their resulting silence was awkward, but it did teach me a valuable lesson.  I’m sure it taught them a valuable lesson as well- be careful who you praise.  He might be a lonely prick starving in an artistic wasteland.)
