Next-Gen Politics

All this talk of next generation has overcomplicated matters to the high heaven which strips away the novelty from video gaming. On Gamer syndrome the Esoteric Anomaly (Daniel Barker) discusses why we should ignore certain journalist and industry personalities because they simply taking the fun out of next gen gaming!

"Politics & video games do not mix, and politics isn’t a game so do not get caught up in it." (Culture, Next-Gen)

Exactly. There is only do and do not. And I choose to play games I like. It shouldn't matter the form of medium you play. And people shouldn't criticize other people because of the medium they choose to play with. We're all gamers, but we are also individuals with unique taste. Some of us my differ, some of us might agree. But there is one thing we can all agree on, and that is playing games we like, and enjoying them, not hampering other people's abilities to have fun with the way they want to enjoy games.

It gets completely ridiculous because they're making the role of being the consumer as complex as the machines that are being promoted. Were seeing tactics spewed on the internet that zap the excitement away from us the gamers.

We shouldn't allow person opinion to outweigh our better judgement or consideration for other people. Playing games is for fun, nothing more or less. There's no need to get caught in a war that the corporations ignited.
