I need to rant about this bullshit article.
I can give you control of this story by simply writing five words: A man enters a room.
When something is the last straw for me regarding a media source, I need to highlight it. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back. When I read about video games, I want to read about the product, or business news.
What I don’t want to read about is some writer putting his politics into an essay that’s loosely based on video game coverage. It’s why I stopped reading Kotaku. It’s now why I quitting Polygon and The Verge. In the last week, both have become bullshit sites.
Bullshit in this case means that they have both moved away from the core. Leave social concern to other sites. I only care about projects and tech. I don’t care about someone like Brian Crecente’s thought piece about agency. It’s the normal posturing that someone that doesn’t create art takes to get clicks. No one is getting tricked into thinking they have control. It’s obvious from the onset that games conform to the rules their creators provide. I don’t have to read this bullshit piece over an issue no one cares about. I won’t be reading anything from this site again.
