Video Game Easter Eggs

Written by Melissa Oliver

It is no surprise to anybody who knows me that I am a sucker for holidays, games and home-made crafts. So naturally, I needed to combine the three and celebrate Easter the best way I know how; Video Game Easter Eggs!

One year out and 3,000 miles away, I’m still all jumbled up thinking about the marathon. A bystander, five miles from the end of the race, that’s what I was. It didn’t impact me directly, but it changed everything around me.

It still doesn’t quite seem real; out of sync with the rest of my experiences. But I still feel so strongly for the city I left behind. I carry it with me. I will always endeavor to be #Boston Strong

"When the student of a social or historical phenomenon belongs to the culture in which it occurs or occurred, the choice of position is determined by the necessity to take a stand: one is either for it or against or tries to be indifferent.

However, even if the student does not belong to the culture that is being studied, the analysis will still bring to it value judgments that are accepted in the student ’ s own culture.

The demand for detachment in such studies, often encountered in the literature, is in any case unsound. It expects of the scholars a split personality which would remove all personal perspective and engagement from their activities as students.

This could only result in dull and mechanical and therefore meaningless analysis.

In fact, it does not exist in practice. What exists, however, is a pretense at objectivity by students who often ignore the fact that their views are wholly determined and thus distorted by current consensus. Such were my considerations when I published a book about Roman frontier policy and imperialism in the East in 1990. It seemed to me only fair to say something about my personal perspective in thinking about the problems at hand. I thought a candid admission that I was intellectually and emotionally involved in the subject of my studies would show that I was aware of my limitations and tried to use my personal experience to advantage in my ruminations.

I must admit that I found it surprising when a few critics, encouraged by this admission, used it against me and accused me of openly acknowledged bias in my views. It seemed to me then, and seems to me true today, that authors who are aware of their perspective have a better chance of delivering lucid analysis, than those who pretend that their experience in life plays no role in their work.

Offensive things aren’t offensive merely because they hurt feelings - they’re offensive because they contribute to the societal harm of marginalized groups. The end goal isn’t to get everyone to love each other, it’s to destroy power imbalances.
