Steam High Five: May 3, 2019 Edition

Tomorrow is May the 4th and yes, I have to say it. May the 4th be with you. As a lifelong geek, nerd, gamer, or whatever, Star Wars has played a pivotal role in my perception of the fantastical. Whether it be sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, or whatever, my mind was first open to such things through the original Star Wars trilogy, and I can’t help but see the influence of it all around in today’s gaming worlds. Star Wars isn’t just a representation of the struggles of good and bad in a single galaxy. For me, Star Wars is the gateway that opened the possibilities of every other world I have encountered through reading, movies, and of course, gaming. Perhaps, rather than May the 4th be with you, I should instead say, May we go 4th, unflinching, and fearlessly explore the greatest depths of the worlds within ourselves.
