Josh Pankratz, over at Ripten, says games will never be timeless.
I was hoping to respond to that article today, but my response is taking more time than I have available. It's a complicated issue that demands a lot of thought... I've been going back and forth on my view for the past couple hours. So I'm just going to point you to the article today, perhaps here some of your thoughts, then post my response sometime tomorrow.
I will get back into a daily habit of posting soon, I promise!
