I’ve written several posts critiquing the silly things that people say about video games. In my youthful exuberance, I neglected to mention that sometimes we should put down the controller. We should strive for balance in life.
And as much as I love video games, there are a lot of unfortunate controversies in this industry. I believe gamers could always treat each other and the non-playing public better. We need to face criticism about the industry with an open mind. We’re not all saints above reproach.
But this is obvious to most of you. I’m still going to say it because we need to recognize that it’s tough for some people to stop playing and stop saying stupid things. Let’s not let them ruin our good time.
So I think I shook my cane at you young whippersnappers enough for today. While I’m at, I’ll remind you to get off of my lawn because you’re killing my finely manicured grass with your coarse running shoes.
And, oh yeah, eat your vegetables!
