On Xenoblade Chronicles and the Goodness of Videogames

Pixels or Death's Adam Harshberger recounts his experience filling his Collectopaedia one pizza-fueled night in Xenoblade Chronicles:

"Usually, I think of the effort I put into games as being reciprocated by the way the game makes me feel – sad, happy, angry, triumphant, whatever. But was this perverted sense of satisfaction worth the effort? Was it worth my time? Was it even satisfaction? Was there any joy in this shit?

It came down to this: is Xenoblade an evil videogame – some kind of time-eating monstrosity? Am I just a binge-eating idiot?

The answer is that I am definitely an idiot, and Xenoblade is a very, very good videogame." (Culture, Monolith Soft, Nintendo, Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles)
