Gaming in Iraq

Zeyad is a 24-year-old blogger who's website Healing Iraq is one of many Internet voices to surface from the war-torn nation in recent months. In a rare diversion from news of attacks and street-level reports on the mindset of the Iraq's citizenry Zayad recently took the time to describe the state of gaming in his homeland. The post is a brief, but interesting look at how and what Iraqis play. When the nightly news makes Iraq seem like such a far off and foreign place, it's reassuring to read that we're all not that different.
