Missing People: The Demise Of The High Street

We now chase the best price for games, and will take a copy that is a few quid cheaper off the internet rather than venture out. You can also pre-order knowing that you won’t end up in a queue around the block come COD launch night, and be forced into a conversation about the merits of the TAR gun over the SCAR with a guy who looks like he only eats breakfast cereal.

These things have chased us from perusing the shelves of games in an actual, real-life shop, with windows and people in them and stuff, into the arms of a digital realm which also might have windows and also has people, but they tend to be less real and more naked. (Culture, Gamestation, HMV, PS3, Xbox 360)

This really made me chuckle :)
