The Gamer Of Baghdad

Very intresting article up on Salon.com dealing with a gamer behind the lines in Iraq.

While missiles crashed around him, Zeyad struggled to keep Crash Bandicoot alive. Today, he continues to play, even as Baathist holdouts rage on and his frustrated countrymen demand a better future.

It’s intresting to read that he learned of American lifestyle from games like Leisure Suit Larry 🙂 It’s also intresting to hear how the war not only dropped prices on electonics, but with the overthrowing of Saddam, items previously blocked by the government are becoming available.
