oblivion437: Vox Pop Winner May 2013

Posted on Saturday, May 4 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by

There were only two Vox Pop entries this past month. That makes this ninja cat sad. But it could be because the new entries this week were so strong that they intimidated everyone.

Whatever the case, both entries had one core message: Don't be a dick, developers! It was difficult to choose a winner because oblivion437 and wildmario both make great points. While oblivion437 lambastes Peter Moore for defending always-on DRM, Origin, and micro-transactions, wildmario tears apart Adam Orth and TheRedner Group for being far too smug. Thanks for writing!

Winner: oblivion437
Title: An Open Letter to Peter Moore



Excerpt: "What of the studios you've shut down, the projects you've canned and the talent you've driven from the industry? What of the employees you've worked overtime without overtime pay?"

 
Runner-Up: wildmario
Title: Treating Gamers Like Morons Doesn't Work
