A Free Gamer’s Manifesto
I game not because I am miserable and have nothing useful to do, but simply because it is perfectly humane to game and I like gaming.
- I game to explore—both inwardly and outwardly.
- Games are like any form of art—there are good ones and bad ones, commercial products and artistic expressions.
- I judge a game by the pleasure and experience it offers—not how much money spent on developing, nor how large the crowd or the buzz is.
- If I haven’t play it, I ain’t no judge of it.
- I don’t give a ducking damn about whether it’s pay to win; I can pay for the damn hot transmogrification of the game character if I feel like to, just as you can pay for the overpriced trending bag you never really need. Fair choices.
- I only cheat if it’s fun and will not hurt others.
- In any given masterpiece, there are always more to explore in the details than what meets the eyes.
- For all my love for games, I love my family, my partner, my friends and humanity even more.
- I can stop playing like a real grownup—I just don’t feel the need to most times.
- Bonds are bonds—real connectionwe feel as human when we stand together for a common goal— whether they are forged in a virtual realm or on earth.
- We don’t look down on beginners—for we see in them what’ve been always in ourselves.
Last but not least, screw the rules—we attempt, epic fail, get back on our feet— and move on like legends would have it!
