No Posts about Computer Games!

In the previous lesson I told you that I don't want you to "teach me" about anything.

That's doubly—no, triply—true about computer games!

Now, don't get me wrong:

If you want to tell me about your video game addiction, and how you often play all night long, and how sometimes you can't stay awake at school because you're so tired from playing Fortnite, and how your mother yells at you because she thinks that you spend too much time playing computer games, but your father doesn't care because he loves computer games too, and how you usually play Fortnite with your best friends, blah blah blah—I'm fine with all that, because I'm learning about you. But I certainly don't want to read a post that sounds anything like this:

Fortnite is the world’s most popular battle royale game, developed by Epic Games. In it, players drop into a map, either on their own or with a team, alongside 99 other players. After landing, it’s a mad dash to pick up as many weapons and items as possible, all while working your way toward the center of the map. Whoever is the last player standing wins the match.

And just in case you didn't get it . . .

This is how Mr. Hall feels when he has to read another post about computer games.

I'm going to be blunt: I hate posts about computer games! I hate them because every year I read far too many of them. I hate them because I have read thousands of posts about computer games—and not a single one of them was even remotely interesting.

If you write a post about computer games, I will probably ask you to delete it from your portfolio, and then you won't get any credit for it at all.
