I'm glad stories like these are getting out there. Can't wait to see the next ones.
Thanks, you won't believe the enthusiasm I've gotten in response to all this :)
This is great. :)
This is a refreshing approach to dealing with the kind of stereotyping that happens in the mainstream media. While it can be frustrating, the usual 'go-to' response of the gaming community has traditionally been to lash out, push back, and basically embody the very image being presented in the first place. Taking a positive and proactive approach is the best long-term course of action.
It'd be lovely if that stigma around video games vanished someday. For now though, people in the community willing to share their stories is exactly what we need. Great stuff.
I love all of this so much! Wonderful work getting these stories put together and out in the world!
It's great that there are people in the community willing to see the positivity that can come out of gaming instead of always focusing on the negative media attention. Keep this up!
