Games Are Good
Posted on Monday, August 20 @ 22:05:16 Eastern by Duke_FerrisGR's old friend Will Vitka has a great piece in the New York Post from Friday. If you don't find it uplifting, touching, and depressing all at the same time, your heart is nothing but a cold, hard lump of coal.
Some people get shit on by the universe. Their brains or their bodies are broken. They have little that would pass for what most of us would call a life. They get put in terrible places.
And for some of these people, it turns out that games are an amazing escape. A way to - for a while - live a fantastic, magnificent existence, instead of the crappy one they received for their crime of being born.
Anyway, go read the article. It's a story about people who don't often get their story told.
I've always told people that I am so happy that when i myself get old and feeble, and I can't get around so well or do as many things, that I'll have the incredible version of whatever games are 50 years from now. Full brain jack and high-seas piracy, here I come.
