    Not a fan. I don't have the time or desire to listen to a full hour of discussion of one game, if the aim of that discussion is to be purchasing advice. The written "review" seems like an utterly poin...

    Whatever stigma is attached to video games is caused by what video games are and the culture surrounding video games. Not by the language used to talk about them.
