“I think people are way too invested in things that ultimately do not matter.”
Dear everyone, take a real world issue you care about, take the energy you generate from your hate/defense of the Epic Store, and channel it into a letter to your congressperson instead of an internet comment about video games. Because this is nuts.
You are like a poster boy if the “They pissed of the wrong people, they pissed of gamers meme”. It would be funny if it wasnt so sad. “Fellow gamer” indeed!
it’s really easy to defend it when the alternative is siding with people like you
How is bring a game to the Epic Store under any condition “screwing over the fans” exactly?
I have never felt more empathy in my life than i do for you, right now.

We need an auspicious celebration. The workplace better have had cake for this milestone!
That’s not a counterpoint? If you don’t want to examine the themes or politics in games, no one is forcing you to. You can read a book for fun and not dissect it. The themes and messages are there, but it’s your choice to engage with them or not, agree with them or not, or read critiques of them or not. Politics are…
It amazes me how hard people fought for games to be recognized as art, only for many of those same people to blow a gasket when people start critiquing them like art.
And there’s also no point to listening to both sides of one side’s arguments are in bad faith.
This sounds like a very longwinded version of the “both sides” false equivalency bullshit.
He's writing from his POV, so I don't know what you mean by "oof-tone." This isn't an article where he's trying to put himself in someone else's shoes. He's simply speaking about his own development as a person.
Really? Because no one complained when there were three Purge movies about conservatives orchestrating a genocide under the semblance of a night of release.
Note to the guards: Suicide watch does not mean, “watch someone commit suicide.”
