A bad word?
Highly enjoyable read that raised some great points :D
Can someone please just write something decent under the title?
I was thinking the exact same thing. At least give me some sort of hint as to what it is I'm about to click on.
Finally something worth reading.. Very good article. Hopefully, in 10 years time, our medium, and people who chastise it both will have matured. And it will be a socially accepted activity, and where developers are held in as high regard as say a moviemaker. But by then, the market will have changed considerably, and "hardcore gaming" as we know it will probably not exist.
good read but ive never had anyone look at me twice for playing video games, ive always gotten into nice discussions about them even with non-gamers, my girlfriend for one wasn't much of one but then i explained a different angle and now she totally see why people like to game
technically it's two words. ^_^ but a great article nonetheless. a lot of the criticism from videogames comes from people who've never played video games. sit these people down and give them a wide variety of games to play and let them know clearly which ones are for kids and which are only for adults and they might finally understand a bit better. the reason they don't have the same criticisms as often for films and tv is because they know more about them. they know there are films like saw, but they know they're aimed squarely at adults. but some people seem to think all games are aimed at children.
Sorry, it's my first article. My future ones will have better titles.
