GameTaffy.com is a news/entertainment site for video games. If you’re hear, you enjoy video games, are curious about video games, or someone punked you into going to a gaming website. No matter why you’re here, we’re glad to have you.
GameTaffy was opened in October of 2011. But the story doesn’t begin there. In October of 2010, Ben Davis started the WarpZone Show on KWCR 88.1 Weber FM with the help of Alex Larrabee and Chelsy Miller.
By spring of 2011, Ben started working with Weber State News to make new releases packages on the tech show. That experience combined with the radio show and podcast led to work with Weber State News’ Studio 76 and KSL.com.
Then, in October of 2011, Ben decided against spending money on “WarpZone.com” and changed the name of everything to “GameTaffy.” Thus, GameTaffy was born.
I hope you took notes. There will be a quiz at the end of the term.
Founder, General Manager
When I was a kid, I wasn’t allowed to touch the Atari, and the Apple II was too complicated for a kid who can’t read. Then, in the 1989, I was allowed to touch my first gaming system: The Nintendo Entertainment System with two controllers, a Zapper, a Track pad, Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, and Track and Field.
Still, I wasn’t allowed to play without supervision from my older siblings. Fortunately, my family liked to go on road trips, and in the Continental United States, there really isn’t much to see for several hundreds of miles. Enter the GameBoy with Tetris and Metroid II, my first gaming system. My first gaming system.
And I was in love.
Unlike any other media or entertainment, gaming is interactive. And don’t take that lightly. Books may be great, but the chapters don’t change on the second reading. Movies offer plenty of visual stimulation, but eventually, you after the first sitting, you have seen everything there is to see. Music is fun, but the experience is finished after three minutes.
Gaming allows players to explore, escape, and experience worlds and people that do not exist.
Therefore, I want to report it and its benefits to the world. It matters because it’s the future.
