I know you don’t like the post, but I want to say I really like your design work, especially this piece.

Most of the people who read this site spend hours playing games in which the singular goal is to shoot people in the face. And that’s fine. But the cultural high road over a silly game show isn’t the best option.

I wrote this article because I’m interested in the topic. I’m honestly surprised more people who love games aren’t interested. Here is a game with real drama, real stakes. Its mechanics are strong and vague at the same time. There’s something to it.

If you think I wrote this for a traffic windfall, then you overvalue a piece about a reality show published on a games site late in the afternoon.

The game has just become so meta and complicated, for better and worse.

I’ll see what we can do about creating a place on the homepage for culture. That’s really helpful advice!

Seconding what Shaun said. We love our community. We take pride in having the best one. Not thinking, but knowing.

But we are going to cover the things we’re passionate about and defend the decision to do so. I love games. I don’t limit that love to video games. I’ve covered pinball, game shows and now reality TV. It’s totally okay if people don’t love it. The great thing is we have tons of coverage focused purely on video games.

The best place to find it is our news stream.
