I can’t say for sure what’s gone wrong lately with people whose job it is to craft, promote, and celebrate video games. I understand that games are literally serious business, and in a certain light might well be confused with serious art, but the lengths to which heads have gone up asses is beyond my ability to understand. I know how easily a cause or an argument can grow to fill your entire field of view, but I don’t know how a person can stand to let what should be a cherished pastime become a bone of such incredible contention. There are a lot of folks (myself included, sometimes) who should lighten up, maybe, and just enjoy some games.
