"Extra Credits" on gaming Difficulty and Fun
Couple of very good discussions on gaming, IIRC Extra Credits is associated with Penny Arcade, http://penny-arcade.com/, in some fashion.

They do an exceptional job of articulating some of the differences in games and gamers.
Stuff I'd understood, but never heard clearly stated before, I know I much prefer games of Depth, as they term it, big part of the reason I still like Diablo 2 but can't stand Diablo 3.
Or Chess vs Checkers.
Difficulty isn't the motivator, or at least not the sole motivator, I also like Minecraft.
Worth watching if your into gaming, and very worth following IMHO.
Twitter and more info for them is available on their Youtube Channel.
