that gaming is starting to become stuckin a current loop of "is gaming getting to big?" or "are people starting to get bored with gaming?"

i have. and i dun like it... ina ll hoensty there's plenty of reasons and complications for this. Wether it be all the damn drama with some feminist chick whining about princess peach, to big triple A companies like microsoft straight up ripping off players, aswell as old gen gamers feeling like gaming has become too big for it's own good.. there's ALOT of things happening.

and no one's really sure how to deal with it.

in all honesty i think it's because gaming is increasingly becoming so large so much is happening ALL AT ONCE and nobody is sure how to react. What was a simple hobby shared among small groups in arcades and at friends houses is now pretty much a world wide phenomenon! Not only are games played among friends now, but now they're a source of web entertainment, for competitive sport, and in some cases art *now even legally an art form*

somethng that was shunned as a "simple toy" and even something that was "BAD for you"is now played by virtually everyone. All fo this has led to alot of good and alot of bad.

hell gaming has many problems aswell. There is the constant backlash it gets by idiotic politicians saying "GAMING IS BAD" just because they know it'll get them votes from older demographics who know nothing about it. Then there are the "Social justice" gamers.. ones that decide  that gaming has to be either "SOLY AN ARTFORM" or even worse has to be preeched with more "woman empowerment" or even simply saying "NO GAMING NEEDS TO BE SIMPLE/COMPLEX" and just causes NOTHING but argument. then finally the sheer fact alot of gamers seem to bitch and whine at each other for no reason.

many of this being the reason why alot of people aren't sure where gaming is going.. but honestly this is all i got to say.

We're gamers. We like to play video games... yeah we can think of it as art, as sport, or even a social thing.. but if you lose sight of it being fun then you end up forgeting why you like video games. so at the end of the day, just continue to like games for what they are, play some with your friends, find new games to play. 

Yeah you can still think of ways to improve the comunity, and the medium. Im not stoping anybody.. but if we lose sight of what we do like then, what's the point? At the end of the day just simply liking games as we allways have, while acknowledging that the medium IS CHANGING, and will ALWAYS change and maybe even NEEDS it, then we will be fine.

at the end of the day, just continue to like games. don't let what games you like, or when you grew up with them change that. Sure the drama is annoying, and honestly i am tired fo somethings to.. but hey? why stop liking games now huh?
