Yeah... It's so despicably sad that gaming has been turned into a money-milking machine, and true love and dedication rarely gets poured into games anymore.

I would caveat that with "AAA gaming." And probably the makers of the game are forced by publishers and accounts to add money-generating systems that interfere with the fun factor.

Headlines tomorrow will read "EA to buy CD Project Red".
To be followed 2 years from now with an announcement that EA is shutting down CDPR.

Or cancels CP2077 because

Our industry is evolving faster and more dramatically than ever before. The games we want to play and spend time with, the experiences we want to have in those games, and the way we play…all those things are continually changing. So is the way games are made. In this fast-moving space, we are always focused on creating experiences that our players want to play…and today, that means we’re making a significant change with one of our upcoming titles.

"Golden Joystick Awards"

No chance of that being mistaken for some other kind of award. Nope.

You're confusing religion with politics, it's a common mistake being as they both have 8 letters.

Also, both are verboten topics at dinner parties.

Forget makeup sex, hypocritical self-hating gay sex is clearly the best kind of sex. Why else would people destroy the careers they built on hating the LGBT community?

LOL, Republican, of course.

Write Ajit Pai a check for $25 (he's a really cheap whore) and he'll be happy to grant you whatever you want.

Well it was a FCC appointed by the democrats that came up with this ridiculous idea in the first place. Can't think of a stupider idea than accessibility requirements on video games.

Well I sure hope you end up blind and deaf and then come tell us how the handicapped don't deserve any consideration or protection. Fucking jerk.
Gee sorry you got upset, please explain how you are going to add handicapped accessibility to games??? Beyond that the concept is silly from the start, it would add a LOT of development to games which would severely hamper any content.

Anyone who thinks this is a good idea is challenged.

It is a good idea, but there has to be balance. Just like ADA laws, it's possible to get a waiver, especially if you're a smaller business or offer non essential services. Which is why up until this point the games industry has been waived to this point. If you're a 5-man studio, you'll never be required to do this. EA and Activision, on the other hand, should be required to add reasonable additions to increase accessibility. This isn't going to bankrupt them, and if they do it right the first time the modules can be basically become part of the Frostbite engine (or whatever) that require very little modification for each new game.

The kinds of support for are pretty basic to add: subtitles for the deaf, machine-read spoken audio for the partially blind, special font for dyslexics, special color schemes for the color blind, the ability to rebind keys for one-handed people, etc.

Lastly, don't forget that 19% of Americans have disabilities. It's just good business to cater to that market.

You could educate yourself, you know. I didn't know any of this until 10 minutes ago.

EDIT: Also what HoSpanky said.

We wanted Bernie, or someone else who is actually a change from the status quo. Not Robo-Hillary the worlds least convincing android. Hillary had nothing but defeatist rhetoric that promised nothing. The only reason she got any votes is that she was up against Donald Trump, a man who has been a walking joke in this country for 40 years.
And yet...yet...when it came to light that she rigged the primary it was only the fringes that were angry. The establishment inside just waved their hands and said it's okay. Then when it came to light that Sanders actually knew that it was rigged, and got a payment off for it. Democrats still hummed and said wellllll that's okay. And you just had an election for a new party leader and who got elected? More of the same. Face it, the democrats are infested top to bottom and worse off then the republicans. At least they've been challenging people and running primary challengers.

At the rate you're going it's going to take 40 years to fix that party, providing it doesn't collapse under it's own corruption.

I tire of this. I wasn't a Hill supporter, but:

1. She won the primary outright, even without super delagates.

2. She won nearly every state where there was a primary in which votes were cast and counted. Bernie won states where the nominee was chose by caucus, wherein the loudest and most enthusiastic (but not necessarily the majority) people decided at town halls.

3. It's not surprising she won given that Bernie joined the party at the last minute.

As we crossed the 300-day mark of DipShit's presidency on Thursday, fact-checkers noted that he has made more than 1,600 false or misleading claims. Good God. At least five times a day, on average, this president says something that isn’t true.

As I stated, delusion mixed with insanity. Complaining about politics is like complaining about the lack of pink lightsabers in Star Wars...
Goddammit, now I can't get pink lightsabers out of my head. THANKS, KX.
