I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

Is Our Culture Being Stolen?
Posted on Monday, June 18 2007 @ 12:36:29 Eastern

  I never really thought about this, but after looking at a comic strip of Penny-Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2001/06/06), i realized that our culture was being taken away. Think of it, how many people do you see who play video games look like this? Almost all of them right? Now, i don't know about you, but the guys who are suppose to play games usually look like this. Do we really want the cool kids to be a part and take over our culture? I certainly don't.

   "Why don't you want normal people to play video games?" one may ask. To clarify things, i'm not saying that your grandma cannot play video games, the ones who shouldn't play video games are the cool kids. I mean, they beat us up for liking video games in the first place, right?

  I should also mention that they are responsible for some of the downfalls in video games. they are responsible for PC gaming dying, why there is few innovation in video games, why EA is succsesful, why Final Fantasy VII is popular, and many others.

    This is all Sony's fault. They are targeting the cool kids to buy their consoles, which has caused our culture to be on the brink of death.
