I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?

    Not to burst any bubbles but I read the best rant today and I always thought that the hobby of videogames was made famous because we wanted to get the HELL AWAY from REALITY.

    I think the future fanboy wars will not be over what Hardware they have but who wants to be an Introvert against an extrovert.

    By forcing persistant online connections gaming companies are not
    helping you remove the stress of a digitally connected world but rather
    adding to that stress. This is going to cause the industry to collapse!
    E-mails, social-networks, cellphones, internet, instant messaging etc
    etc etc. This is all things that drain a person on a daily basis with
    the constant barrage of information being shoved in our faces
    constantly. Hence why people have hobbies. Switch of cellphone and go
    golfing/diving/biking/hiking/ and yes even gaming! But no, now we are
    still bombarded with real world people and what they are up to! So and
    so achieved this, so and so invited you to play, so and so wants to see
    your profile, such and such a company are now advertising here and
    spamming horrid ads. It never stops! How can gaming remain a hobby if it
    doesn’t allow us to escape our digital connectivity in this very
    digital age? It can’t. If this is the path it is going to take it simply
    will lose steam as a hobby and become more of competitive driven scene
    and let’s face it. Not everyone wants to be competitive 100% of the
    time. I am doing that enough at work thanks.

      I think modern gamers want to interact with each other. Not necessarily with the world at large but with each other. I don’t know about you but most of the people I follow on twitter or friend on FB are all gamers too so sharing gaming related stuff with them is not a problem. And if you use social media properly, its not very intrusive at all.
