*Stands and claps*

A wonderful evaluation of the psychology behind games and gamers in general. The world is a messed up place, full of petty politics and injustices. Games are the one escape most of us have.

A truly moving article.

I realize i'm a year late to this party, but I too wanted to report I found this very moving. thank you so much Erin Hoffman.

wonderfully said and beautifully written, thank you again.
