I’ve just got back from a rather good day’s gaming in Sheffield (I’ll blog on the two games I played later on) but whilst I was there I was made aware of this video:
Scary stuff in a way and it is terrible that his family’s health has suffered too.
Nonetheless it gotr me thinking about how open people are about their hobby. I know that in recent years ‘geek culture’ for want on a better term has increased in prominance and exceptance but it is still not something that I readily volunteer that much… Through my misspent 20s I still gamed but I hardly told anyone; I figured that very few people I met through my DJ-ing and writing in the goth/ industrial/ experimental scene would care and anyway other things could be discussed. Now that I have stepped back from that and most of my social circle consists of gamers I am obviously far more open about it. It did get me wondering how everyone else felt about it?
I’d be interested to hear your views….
