bartle and the politics of regulating games April 29, 2008

Posted by Bradley in : Uncategorized , trackback

Just after the Commission’s decision to focus on online games, Richard Bartle (writes in the Guardian) suggesting that the political paranoia about computer games is time limited as gamers age:

Gamers vote. Gamers buy newspapers. They won’t vote for you, or buy your newspapers, if you trash their entertainment with your ignorant ravings. Call them social inadequates if you like, but when they have more friends in World of Warcraft than you have in your entire sad little booze-oriented culture of a real life, the most you’ll get from them is pity.
