Why do I consider this problem on par with the police brutality and fast food protests going on now? Because you’d be surprised how many police officers are Gamers; in a sense, conventional FPSes are incubators for military and law enforcement organizations.
In the US, gaming is considered by many trivial or frivolous, but gaming is far from trivial. Gaming is how we minimize losses and maximize gains. Gaming is how we test hypotheses of social interaction. Gaming and play is how we acquire and hone new skills. Gaming empowers players. It should worry people that gaming is being contested in territorial disputes by predominantly patriarchal culture to the exclusion of radically inclusive and representative social justice communities.
Gaming is one of the most significant forms of media in the world right now. The industry surpasses the music and movie industry combined in revenue. It is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and it was one of the few which grew during the 2008 recession. Social justice communities frankly can not afford to be excluded from game development, publication, journalism, and communities. Games are becoming the way in which history is written and passed on to present and future generations. The Gamer community as it stands must be burnt to cinders and constructed to accommodate the needs of the many; the game as it is played has no case in which those outside the privileged classes can win, so the game must be changed, abolished, or a different game must be played entirely.
