So, I don’t know about you, but when this week ends it shall be summertime for me. Nothing screams summertime louder than video games. Although my New Year’s resolution is to read more books, I’m pretty sure that video games will most likely consume my soon to be unlimited time. I’ve looked through this infographic and I was pleased to see some of my favorite videogames of all time are on here: Portal 2, Mario Bros 3, Katamari Damacy, Mario Kart 64, Bioshock, Final Fantasy X, Okami, Shadow of the Colossus just to name a few. With titles like these, there’s really no way of going wrong. This makes me all the more excited to check out the other games on this list that I haven’t played. If they’re even close to the caliber of the previously mentioned games, then I shall be a happy man.

Some notes of correction though… Okami should be under the female character branch, seeing as the main character is a fox goddess, also I believe that the Zelda games should somehow be under the ‘like solving puzzles?’ branch because you gotta love puzzles to beat those games. Also, where’s Pikmin? Such an underrated gem of a game. Let us know what you think of this infographic. Is it missing some of your favorites?

Job Jumps and Career Changes [infographic]

I received an email from a friend today informing me that he had not gotten the Fulbright scholarship he had been counting on, had been let go from his 35 hour per week internship, had discovered the girl he adored throughout college had gotten engaged, and that he was certain–despite their unyielding love for him–that his parents would never understand his counterculture ways of pursuing his dreams.

The closing of his e-mail read, “I can go anywhere in the world come August and try to do anything I want, but how much will I be running from instead of running to? Lots of interesting decisions lie ahead.” Reading this email was like looking at a formula: shattered high hopes + college grad with mediocre job + idolized love demolished by reality + worrisome parents + detours from the mainstream + invincible dreams = millennials!

The truth is, we’re a generation bred by technology. It has opened doors for us, but it has also made us much less decisive. With information so readily available and new opportunities coming at us left and right, it’s hard to find what truly interests us. This infographic does a great job of outlining the millennial mindset within the workplace and the nature of our work ethic. It also discusses the importance of doing your research before taking that next step in your professional career. Only you can determine whether or not your next endeavor is the right one. Lots of interesting decisions lie ahead. [via]

History & Future of the Television Upfront [Infographic]

Everyone is aware of advertising, we see it just about anywhere and everywhere we go on a daily basis. Ads find their way into almost everything we see and hear, and one of the mediums in which they’re most prevalent is one of the classics: TV. Television advertising dates back to just about the same time that TV broadcast networks were established and they’ve only grown in number and variety since then.

Today’s infographic from Videology gives us a look at the past, present and future of television marketing and advertising. The standard TV season scheduling that we know today came about in 1948 when major network ABC started centering the beginnings of their seasons (and thus some of the most-watched advertisements for their network) at the same time that major auto manufacturers were releasing their new year’s line of automobiles: in the fall. Fast-forward several years to the early 2000′s and we see the Nielsen ratings system being implemented with DVRs and recorded programming to measure what is being watched now vs. what is being watched at a later time.

For more information on the history of TV advertising and marketing have a look at the infographic below. [Via]

Pairing Wine and Food [infographic]

Jesus turned water into it, people stomp their feet to make it, and it can still be ingested after 200 years of proper storage. This distinctive beverage is wine. The practice of making wine has been around for 6,000 years and is still used for celebratory, religious and even health purposes. Wine is produced on every continent, except Antarctica. Wine production is especially prevalent in Italy, Spain and France. France even opened the first academic center devoted to studying wine.

I grew up drinking Manischewitz wine during communion at my family church. Now that I am finally 21, my world is opening up to the plethora of wines to choose from. Unfortunately, the concord wine I enjoyed at church (which is practically grape juice) did not make the menu of different wines in the infographic for today. I will have to expose my palate to the world of wine, and the amazing amount of thought that is put into pairing it with food to make a meal perfect. Looks like the fixings for a great dinner party!
