He’s posted a follow-up and a semi-apology, which means more or less nothing to me. It sounds like we’re all buddies now, but he still wants M-rated games taken off the shelves. He can make all the noises he likes about “having a conversation” with the gaming community, but he’s no different than any other authoritarian book-burner out there, except he’s the hip new digital sort.
I shouldn’t even be giving the guy the exposure, but I’m weak. (Plus, I didn’t have time to write anything interesting for today.)
The Best of 2013
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2013.
Internet News is All Wrong
Why is internet news so bad, why do people prefer celebrity fluff, and how could it be made better?
The Loot Lottery
What makes the gameplay of Borderlands so addictive for some, and what does that have to do with slot machines?
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
Do It Again, Stupid
One of the highest-rated games of all time has some of the least interesting gameplay.
