Video games don’t exist in a bubble. They are not exempt from commenting on social issues. They very much reflect real world issues. The argument that they are just “for fun” suggests that the developers have not responsible for creating violent, disturbing, or offensive content
The real world leaks in to video games and video games leak into the real world.
I was at some sort of kids music workshop at a gaming con. One of these 8yr olds started playing NSP’s “next to you”. As I was walking around the classroom, I notice Danny Sexbang in his usual NSP kimono, smiling and totally enjoying this little girl singing and playing his song. I suggest that we should leave as parents and the rest of the audience are mortified by the contents of the song. So Danny says his good byes and I offer to walk with him to his next event. He’s super cool about it and were just chatting. We get to his next place and I ask if I could take a selfie with him. He agrees. As get ready to take the pic, a bunch strangers try to get in the picture too. I shove them away and they get super pissed. I’m getting super embarrassed because my phone camera isn’t working right and people keep trying to get in the pic. Then a mascot starts stealing stuff from kids. Then I wake up.
