Why Being a Gamer Makes You a Good Person

Gamer Good

Goodness. It has been quite the week! In case you are unaware, I am part of a large consumer movement in defense of gamer culture and identity. The movement is called ‘GamerGate’ and it has been more than two months since it started.

On Wednesday, I was featured on HuffPostLive to speak out about the movement. I, along with my colleagues Jemma Morgan and Georgina Young, were fueled with a fiery desire to get our word out there. It was a wild ride, and we are overwhelmed with all the positive responses we’ve been getting!

Please do check it out. The video is here.

As a gamer, I know how important it is to be heard. For so long, and I’m sure you can agree, gamers have been dismissed or ignored for their identity – simply because mainstream media portrays gamers as childish or a menace to society.

This brings me to this week’s video. A video I wanted to share ever since GamerGate became a cultural phenomenon.

I’d like to remind you why you are amazing.

Cheers and keep on gaming.

Are Video Games Art?

I’m pretty sure we’ve both experienced some thought about the relation between art and video games. I have always thought of games as an art form. Not because of the beautiful aesthetics of a game, but because of the immersive gameplay. I thought that art was considered anything that leads to an emotional or passionate response, and I always felt that way about games. What about you?

In this video, I ask you one question: Are Video Games Art? I go through both arguments so you can piece together your own opinion.

After watching the video, fill out this poll: http://goo.gl/argm3Y

We’ll discuss the results next week.
