In highlights from Gamasutra's Member Blogs, our weblog writers take an in-depth look at opportunistic play, video game ratings, and Wind Waker. Member Blogs can be maintained by any registered Gamasutra user, while invitation-only Expert Blogs -- also highlighted weekly -- are written by selected development professionals. Our favorite blog post of the week will earn its author a lifetime subscription to Gamasutra's sister publication, Game Developer magazine. (All magazine recipients outside of the United States or Canada will receive lifetime electronic subscriptions.) We hope that our blog sections can provide useful and interesting viewpoints on our industry. For more information, check out the official posting guidelines. Here are the top member blogs for the week: This Week's Standout Member Blogs - Opportunistic Play (Michel McBride Charpentier) Michel McBride Charpentier name-drops Clint Hocking in this blog post, which is why I selected it for inclusion. Seriously though, he also makes interesting observations about the importance of opportunity in game design. For his effort, Michel will receive a lifetime subscription to Gamasutra sister publication Game Developer magazine. - Alexei Chibakov (Alexei Chibakov) It is well documented that video games are interactive murder simulators, so game content ratings are of paramount importance. But there are lots of them! Alexei Chibakov crunches the stats. - 'Don't Get Married'? (Shelly Warmuth) "Don't Get Married"? More like "Do Get Married, While Maintaining A Healthy Work/Life Balance"! - John Kwag (John Kwag) In this post, John Kwag clarifies and solves Korea. Oh ho, I slay me. Actually he continues analyzing the Korean gaming scene, as he began to do in a previously-featured post. - The Philosophy of The Wind Waker - Part Five (Dan Merrill) Dan Merrill loves The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. A lot. He really, really likes this video game.
