The Grandstanding Of Gaming Needs To Stop

I’m not entirely sure when the wretched tentacles of the real world’s troubles began to wriggle their way in to my preferred form of escapism, but I would really love it if they would stay the fuck out of it. You see, due to  a recent surge in pseudo-intellectualism, it would seem that many gaming “journalists” are desperately attempting to force real-world problems in to the minds of gamers everywhere by drawing parallels between fictional plot-lines and cultural topics that the majority of people do not give two shits about.

“There was a political blog here…it’s gone now.”

Obscure references for the win, eh? Listen to video and then read for full effect.

Way back in 2007, in the aftermath of the 2006 election cycle, I had decided to make a personal blog that was to encompass my thoughts and views on pretty much everything that I had experienced. However, as the 2008 elections grew ever closed, I began to focus entirely on the political aspect of my blog and it eventually consumed every single post I made. Looking back from 2012 I can say that I noticed how apathetic I had become and it showed in my writing. Everything I had written was entirely cynical, angry, or just outright combative. So, as time moved on I found myself essentially hating the one thing that I had initially loved.

Writing.

Everything that I had written oozed negativity and so it made me a very negative person. My constant warring with others over politics had poisoned my writing and I eventually just stopped. I would occasionally come back and try to post something whimsical or topical in an attempt to try to rekindle what I had originally set out to do, but it was all for naught and the blog would remain abandoned again in a matter of posts. So, after quite a few months of deliberation I have decided to start anew and remove all of the political and idiotic posts from my blog.

There will be new content, but it will probably be over gaming and things related to gaming. This wont be a journalistic site and it’ll only be my opinion. I can’t even promise that all of it will be sunny or positive. However, I can assure you that anything that gets posted here again will be of a certain expected personal quality.

To a brighter future in writing!
