Is there a subreddit for the like of chatramdom or chatroulette gone wild?
Thank you for asking that question.
The way I see it, video games are a great way to engage our generation with a medium that most people find revolting. We're allowed to be gross, but we're not allowed to be mired in that material. We don't have that luxury in real life. And part of the reason is because the vast majority of people make sure everything is just one size fits all, even in their social groups. Part of the reason is because we see things in terms of players, objectives, icons, objective markers, objective criteria, objective rules, objective systems. It's how we learn and it's part of the reason we're still evolving as a species.
Video games are different. We don't have the same restrictions on who can play, nor do we have the same guidelines for when a person can expect to see an objective in a video game. What we do have, however, is a new medium that has incredible potential to engage our children and our adults. Let me explain.
Video games are playing a big role in our consciousness today. I want you to imagine what it would be like if -- if you were to take the games that we know and put them into a movie theater -- we expect something completely different. Games are literally reshaping our reality. They are redefining where we go to go to play, what we see and how we interact. They are reshaping the expectations of our children and reshaping how we see the world around us. And we, as a society, are simply rolling our eyes in disgust.

The more people you convince, the bigger the screen and in which direction the music is coming from, the more players there are who want to play, the bigger the screen and in what direction the music is coming from, the more players there are who want to play, the more players there are who want to play, the bigger the screen and in what direction the music is coming from, the bigger the screen. Now, games are a lot like that old saying goes, you never know who you're going to meet along the way.
Think about what we've done to our reality. We've made video games the main mode of entertainment of children. I'm not making any personal claims to that fact. What I am saying is that it is ridiculous to pretend that our kids can't watch something like Candy Crush or Dunia, the gorgeous Russian puzzle game, which is available for Windows, Apple and Android phones and tablets. Windows Phone users have been known to play this game in the middle of the road places.
If our kids want to play Minecraft, which is
