Open Letter to People Who Make Games

Russ Pitts wrote a masterful article for The Escapist titled Open Letter to People Who Make Games, and in it he respectfully (but pointedly) calls out the gaming industry for the quality of their product.

This has become one of my most significant disappointments with gaming: we have no right to return games that simply don't work, and in some cases, never work. It is utterly preposterous, and yet, somehow we have come to this.

What this means is that a hobby I have loved for over two decades means less to me than it once did.

Russ does a much, much better job of explaining why it matters than I ever could, though, and it is a beautifully written piece. Required reading.
