Remember my series on Video Game Conventions, in which the hero of legend battled repetitive townsfolk, incomprehensible villains, a casino gambling addiction, compulsive stealing and monsters carrying money?
Paste, the fine mag to which I contribute game reviews, has its own take on the cliche adventurer in a new humor piece by Brian Howe titled Diary Of A Video Game RPG Hero, and it's pretty cute. Check it out! The above illustration, which was done by Kyle T. Webster, ran alongside the piece both in print and online. Ain't it neat? So full of pathos!
