Continuing on from the argument that one can love games as art but hate them as a business, Jimquisition this week focuses on how gamers can best express their distaste for the latter while still supporting the former.

Would boycotts work, even if gamers could unite for long enough to see them through? Is there not something gamers already do, very well, that works better?
