Can you say Pwned?

This article pretty much sums it up. But really, it sounds like the book gamers thrashed was a POS anyway. I'm pretty happy that gamers are starting to fight back. We keep getting flamed for all this stuff that's just not our fault, and with organizations like Childs Play, which raised over $1 Million for sick kids, the good far out weighs the bad.

Really, I'm just tired of the ignorance theses days. In that article, Ms. Lawrence says
"Before the show I had asked somebody about what they had heard, and they had said it’s like pornography"

WHAT?! You trash a form of media with out even looking at it first?! I know people degrade video games because it doesn't seem like a viable form of media, but as time goes on, video games become better and better, the stories grow and deepen, the graphics become more realistic, and every year sees more innovative games. By not even looking at the game it's like giving a movie a horrible rating with out seeing it, or trashing a book with out reading it...kinda like what the gamers did to her now isn't it?

Moral of this story...don't fuck with gamers.
