What we all need to know, in order to play well together, is that anyone can quit at any time for any reason. If we are sure of that, we can be sure that we are playing with people who want to be playing.
I love games. I love making them, developing them, playing them, producing them, selling them… I love everything about them. I also honestly believe that games are valuable to the world—playing games makes kids smarter and brings people together.
The opportunity to play the game, to play it well, shrank until it was barely accessible, until we were more honoring the memory of what the game had been for us than giving life to what it could become.
