Irrelevant but fascinating

Absolute dedication to a very specific cause never ceases to intrigue me – and it’s more common than anywhere on the internet. Today, for example, there’s a press release about the first annual Widescreen Gaming Forum (WSGF) Awards.

The WSGF website is an impressive thing. I have no interest in how well widescreen is implemented in PC games, but these guys have coined their own terminology (Hor+, Vert-) to describe the various possible implementations, and even offer pre-release certification to developers. The sheer scope of the endeavour and the attention to detail is fascinating to read about, even though it’s ultimately irrelevant to me.
