Have you ever thought to yourself, “Wait just a moment. Why doesn’t The Fanfare have a gaming column?”

 

The odds of this thought crossing your mind are (admittedly) low. However, for the select few who’ve had this thought incubating in the back of their minds, their questions are about to be answered.
