That would work if I said "don't worry about games, WORRY ABOUT WAR!" ... what I said was "don't worry what some douche bag thinks about video game reviews, he's not very good at articulating points himself, if you're concerned about the quality of writing in the media go after the big fish". Heck you can criticise video game reviewers, I have... but this guy acts like there needs to be someone from all walks of life to evaluate every aspect of a video game. It reads like a man with a serious chip on his shoulder and a big case of white guilt.
you writers understand these are just games, right?
Meaning what, exactly? That games are incapable of communicating a serious message? That we should let our guard down when consuming entertainment, because it is considered non-vital? I can't articulate my thoughts, but there's just something horrible about this line of thinking.
I'm also really tired of this strawman bullshit. The article isn't about social criticisms of BioShock. It's about giving video games their due critical thinking and intellectual rigor.
I think what he means is even if we don't review BioShock Infinite up to the standards of the self-righteous "artiste" does it really matter that much? You know there's journalists on the ground in wars around the world... these are fucking video games. Chill out.
Also, that old black lesbian comment is perfect... and made me laugh.
