    Over the past year or so I’ve been having my wife, more professionally known as the Lady I Live With, try out a handful of video games in an effort to learn more about what they are like for people who don’t spend a lot of time playing them. Through these informal experiments I’ve gained a better understanding of some of the barriers that exist for inexperienced players; there’s a lot about the basics of video games that I and many others take for granted, and watching her try to figure these things out has led to me viewing games through a new lens—one of someone unfamiliar with typical game…
