I’m deleting my gaming accounts. Steam and GOG are up on the block (they have both been initiated, but take forever to go through).
I spend too much time grinding my teeth. When I was a kid, I had to save up scraps of cash for months, and I had to trade in my old games, to get new ones. In Steam I “have” 875 games.
I just don’t fucking care. I have no way to evaluate that many games. I’d rather be protesting.
Also, I bought a piano. There’s that.
I want to game. I love gaming. But I’m not going to have a shitty relationship with supernatural entities (companies) that contribute to the constant maelstrom of distraction.
I’m not afraid. I was afraid. Of losing 900 games. Now I’m tired and angry, so this abusive relationship with video games has to end.
I want libre games, public domain games, games that encourage and include. Old, wise games. New, novel games. Games of freedom.
