The Jimquisition Tackles Gamer Entitlement
It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for the latest video from Jim Sterling, reviews editor for our sister site, The Escapist. This week’s topic hits especially close to home, as Jim is investigating the oft-misused idea of Gamer Entitlement. It’s a topic we’ve talked about a lot, especially as it pertains to the Mass Effect 3 ending debacle.
Jim explains what entitlement actually is, where it exists, and more importantly, where it doesn’t. My personal favorite quote, and some great advice for all you gamers out there, was this one:
“I would like to instead encourage gamers to wear their entitlement on their sleeves, to continue to call out companies who put their short term love of cash above not only consumers, but the long-term health of the games industry as a whole, because you’re the fucking customer – and your job is to look out for yourself in just the same way.”
