I am a young game designer. My overall goal is to make people happy with what I create, many are in the industry for money, but I strive to become one of the best in the business for my own purposes. I want people to think critically about games, and what goes into it. I believe if we can we will all make better quality games for all people to enjoy, and with our input we can make the world around us a better place.

So you wish the mainstream wasn't the norm?

Being on the internet is wonderful thing because you get to see a lot of diverse perspectives, and being on the internet is a crappy thing sometimes because you get to see a lot of diverse perspectives. So the internet is a good and bad thing? The answer to that is no, but also yes. The internet is to the eye of the beholder that if you choose to make your experience on the internet that of the spreading of knowledge and the journey of expanding your own mind then that is the experience you will get. If you keep being apart of communities that are toxic those communities will not only grow, but continue to stay toxic to you.

Now, how does this necessarily relate to games? The choices you make do matter, and the simple choice of making a purchase does have political, socioeconomic, and ethical ramifications. It doesn't matter if you want that to be the case or not you are a living person these are things are part of this world, and they are a part in video games as well. Games aren't apolitical, and it doesn't necessarily mean that the people making games are trying to make political stances on subjects and issues but when game developers choose to make the good guys primarily a white male, bad guys of their games primarily people from the middle east, what does that say about the message the game is making. I am not saying the people who make those games are racist, or homophobic, or even sexist. I am saying that if you make the game's system of that about attacking from one race to another there is a message being presented with that. Despite whether or not you think or feel that the game has fun gameplay it still says these things.

Just like the choices that you make in a game matter the choice to purchase those games matters as well. The biggest argument against people who like the shit talk on Call of Duty is if you are going so much out of your way to make fun of it why do you still have the game, buy the games, and like their Facebook, and watch their trailers? You giving them that attention is showing to them we can get people talking and if people are talking they will buy. So if you don't like the "MainStream" for what ever reason stop supporting it, because even hating on it is still supporting it. Support games that do things interesting, or the games on IndieDb or Itch.io, or whatever compels you, because that is how you stop something from being the mainstream. You don't like Kanye, or Kim, or Lady GaGa, then stop giving them the time or day and give attention to others the people who are indie and struggle to survive. You live in this world whether you like it or not it is on all of us to make decisions that will help others around us and the betterment of this world.

Thanks for reading
