A Gamer No More
I will no longer refer to myself as a gamer.
The term’s become synonymous with a mindless, nasty, spiteful group, incapable of even the most basic forms of empathy toward others.
This is a community I do not want to associate with. And, while this mentality has always been there, the last few weeks have been abhorrent.
Countering this is important and I’d like to champion and show my respect for Tim Colwill’s announcement on Games.on.net.
I will always believe in and support the work of talented developers and intelligent activists but I am a gamer no more.
