Get a life – a virtual one you mean?
We always thought it was funny when people used that saying. Especially as we’re always getting lives with our D-pads. There’s no way you can keep going without making sure you’ve got a good stock of them right?
Well, that’s what D-pad Joy is all about. We play and talk video games, but more importantly, we’re proud to play and talk video games. It’s a wonderful pastime that we, and many others, hold dear in our joyful hearts.
And yet, video games are still regularly attacked for ‘promoting violence’, ‘creating anti-social individuals’ and causing ‘mayhem in our society’. None of this is true, of course. But here we are.
We’ll be happy when the above claims are dropped against video games. We’ll also be delighted when video games are truly, and rightfully, recognised as the works of art that they are.
Until that day dear reader, keep gaming, and keep being awesome.
