    I am so glad your a guildmaster now can i get a nice lvl 70 sword for my warrior. jk

    Great speech you really captured many of the feelings that games provide. And any who has played Zelda for NES understand the feelings of fighting the final boss losing and starting all over again.

    i am so glad the gaming world has you because you are smart and can convey to the nongamers what games are all about. Thank you so much for being here. And i am very glad you were recognized by such an honorable institution.

    Grats

    That was an amazing speech Adam. I am one of the people who have been sticking by you since back when you were hosting Extended Play on Tech T.V. You are one of the main reasons why I developed a passion for video games and the industry and why I am still passionate about it to this day. You have been a great influence in my life and I would like to say congratulations for your achievements.

    I have a very strong urge to fanboy out right now, but I won't and only say that congratulations are in order for that very well written and performed speech. Great job Adam! You should get asked to do more commencement speeches if you are going to keep churning out speeches like that.

    Until this, I never knew why you liked Uncharted 2 so much. I just played A Boy and His Blob, and I felt very similar, and think that's one of the best games I've ever played. I didn't care for Uncharted 1, but just this little bit is the reason why I will break down and finally get U2.

    Please keep in mind that the personal anecdotes of your emotional responses behind the reviews are much more convincing than just saying that something is good.
