Game of the Year
Game of the Game
Not a game.
I like that the main takeaway of this funny little thing is “Let’s just focus on something else”. Feels both reasonable and liberating.
Yes, but is it a game?
I love this GAME. I wonder who is behind the Game Police twitter account.
Wow, completely misses the point of the game/not-game distinction and creates comical straw men to mock. This glorified blog post adds nothing to a conversation it doesn’t even understand.
If you want to avoid committing precisely the same sin you’re leveling against this bit of parody, maybe you ought to explain your supposed “point of the game/not-game distinction”?
If there’s a point to the Game Police’s performance (in this piece and elsewhere) it’s that the “not a game!” cry is routinely used to police boundaries in ways that overshadow any possible tangible benefit.

I think Regi’s point is that that, while arguably true in some instances, that perspective can be deeply shallow and reductive.
‘Deeply shallow’ is a fun phrase.
(Also, I’d like to change my answer to: “if there’s a point to the Game Police’s performance it’s that this sort of discussion is a silly waste of time and energy.” Apologies for engaging!)
Glad I’m not the only frustrated with the discourse about this silly issue. Game Police is cute but it isn’t helping.
