Oh, good job, gamer culture, you’ve resorted to literal terrorism now.

Ha,let me guess, the usual basement dwellers are going to say this is all a conspiracy again and she sent the e-mails herself or something.

What is Bioshock about?

guilelessmonk:

Everyone knows Bioshock (the first) is about Objectivism, I mean it says the word a lot and the concept helped form the in game world so how could it not be about Objectivism?

Clearly a game that is about to launch into a nuanced discussion about the role of government.

Finally, a game that sheds the childish binary morality systems and embraces complex concepts and seeks to explore deeper ideas, right?

Except, despite how much Objectivism matters to one of the game’s main characters that doesn’t mean that is what the game is about, or even that the game has something to say about the matter.

If you want to understand what a game is about we need to not just look at the game’s world and what buzz words are used in it but we need to look at how the player interacts with this world. And how does a player interact with the world of Bioshock?

COMPLEX MORAL CHOICES!

So this covers a lot of what I think is very overrated about the Bioshock series.

you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games

i feel like not enough people…

!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been watching this guy’s livestreams for a few days now. He’s super positive and really nice to all his viewers, answering everything he can. Also considering his abilities he is really good at Diablo III and WoW. Like the fact that I could have been playing WoW with people like him and getting my ass handed to me by them is part of the reason I appreciate video games as a form of therapy.

"I’m really feeling good about myself!"

This makes me SO happy. Amazing!

Technology.

My husband showed me this video and cried. Super touching and inspirational.
