  1. As a fellow gamer and GF resident, I voted. Honestly, I think that Great Falls has the opportunity to become a high-tec hotspot, BUT it will never happen because of the following:

    Another quick LaughingMan story… sorry:
    “I was interviewing around the state for a job after college. I had some good leads in Great Falls, but every time I mentioned Great Falls to anybody in Missoula, Bozeman, or Helena I always got the same high-and-mighty attitude: ‘Oh… Great Falls… yeah…'”

    Everyone treated this town like it was dying animal on its last leg, and that wanting a job here was ludicrous. Even this video game proposal makes Great Falls sound like the Garnet Ghosttown. However, as everyone knows, Great Falls has the majority of the bells and whistles of larger MT cities like Missoula but with a better ‘small town’ atmosphere that I’ve come to enjoy.

    Until we debunk the ‘dilapidated’ MYTH that everyone around us seems to have, and really advertise the best aspects of Great Falls (Benefis Hospital, GF Symphony, the hiking trails, the bajillion golf courses, etc) we’ll never get enough young people and families to not only live and work in Great Falls, but who also actually WANT TO STAY.
