Sessler’s Soapbox: Mass Stupidity
Apparently, bashing Mass Effect is that key to recognizing idiocy so far in 2008. While Adam doesn’t mention the Cooper Lawrence debacle, his rant is applicable to that as well.
It’s obvious that there is still a long way to go in gaining acceptance among some markets for gaming. However, it would behoove the folks speaking out against gaming to consider this: the vast majority of people who play games have the ability to vote. This sort of idiocy makes me hope that someone in this year’s campaign will come out as supportive of gaming, so gamers will have the chance to flex their ballot box muscle.
Once folks in the media see how many people actually play games these days, I bet you’ll see the perception change quickly.
Thanks, G4 TV!
