“It’s a well known fact, that if something can throw a gamer off track, it’s this: “Relax, it’s just a game” or “Calm down, it’s just a game” or, as this forum proudly displays “don’t panic, it’s just a game”.
It pains me to see people still writing this, and it kills me to see the creators doing so. Pacman is just a game. Tetris is just a game. Half life, Assassin’s Creed, Skyrim, LIMBO, Portal and Katawa Shoujo alike, isn’t just games. It’s art, it’s beauty, it’s something to be experienced and admired, it’s something you put your time into, it’s one of the few positive sides of the human mind and influence. It’s something that makes you think and wonder, something that makes you feel and jadda jadda, I’m not gonna try and give a lengthy speech, since I’ve already made my point. Please don’t say it’s just a game, it’s like saying World Trade Center was just some buildings with some people.”

People laugh, but I think this is the logical consequence of having the free will to live our lives how we want and decide what things mean to us. There will be people who choose this way.
