Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight, I present the latest episode from the YouTube channel PBS Game/Show.  The threat of death keeps video games exciting and exhilarating, and can really affect how you play. Knowing the condition of your character is important for deciding strategy and urgency, but there is much debate over the best way to display this information. Some games rely on simple numbers and statistics to indicate health, while others choose to represent those numbers with visual cues. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but what do you prefer?  Enjoy the video!
