Attn attn ~ volume 2

You know what encourages me? I like to think 40 years ahead. When Call of Duty is all but forgotten, and its infinite clones are completely erased from public memory, when people bring up "classic" video games.

And there will be nobody out there apart from us who played STALKER, or hated Skyrim, or called out "memes" as the unfunny shite that they were. We'll be the ones that remember the things from this generation which will be considered classics, and we'll have experienced them the first time they came about.

We're like the guys who bought impressionist paintings when the rest of the art world revelled in corporate same-ness.

Good art tends to be recognised in the long run. It also tends to be ignored in the short-term.

Here's some examples:
>impressionism
>fauvism
>neo-raphaelites
All of these are schools of fine art that were wildly UNpopular at the time they were created. Since then they have grown massively in popularity, eclipsing their contemporaries to a ridiculous extent.

Have faith guys.
