From the moment I heard the word “fringe” I knew I had to learn to stop it.
A friend of mine, a fan of video games, asked me if I’d ever thought about starting my own gaming studio.
“No,” I said, “because I’d never have any chance of succeeding.”
I didn’t want to be a “frenemy,” I’d already spent years making my own games, and I knew that I could make a lot of money with just a little time.
But I’d had enough.
For a time, I felt like I could do no wrong.
Then I started reading up on the topic, and soon found myself on the same page as my friend.
The problem is, gaming isn’t a hobby.
It’s an industry.
And we are in the midst of a major transition, as gaming gets increasingly mainstream and mainstream culture begins to embrace it.
This is not a good thing.
As I’ve written about before, mainstream culture has shifted in many ways in the last 20 years.
In the late ’90s, it was the grunge movement, and grunge was a lot more mainstream than it is today.
I also wrote about the internet and the proliferation of online communities, and the shift toward online communities was a huge part of that.
But this is different.
Today, gaming is so much more mainstream, and it’s becoming a major part of our lives.
As my friend said, we are all part of the new “fusion,” which is a big change from the past.
Gaming has always been an industry that was part of a larger culture, but now we’re part of an entire fusion.
As a result, I can’t help but be a bit worried about what gaming will look like in the future.
I have some ideas for how we might stop it, and these are just a few of them.
I want to stop gaming.
Not because I’m afraid of losing my job, or being bullied for being a game dev, or even for not being able to pay my bills, but because I think it’s time to stop.
As I said earlier, gaming will be part of my life for the rest of my lifetime, and to do that, I want to know that I’m doing it the right way.
This is not just a gaming problem.
For decades, video games have been a staple in my life.
When I was a child, I played video games all the time.
My family owned a video game store in the 1970s.
I would walk into the store every weekend and play a video games marathon.
In that way, I had a lot to learn.
But by the time I was 18, video game technology had evolved beyond the mere game of chess, and video games were a big part of what I was interested in.
My parents were very aware of this, and as a result I spent a lot time on video games.
But it wasn’t until my late teens that I started playing video games for a living.
I began playing competitive games with friends in the late 1980s.
And that was the start of what became the competitive gaming scene that we now know as “gaming.”
I was one of the few who could make the big bucks and get the best players, but the competition was intense.
The game was still pretty intense, but I started to enjoy it more and more.
I realized I needed to take my passion more seriously, and eventually quit my job to focus more on video gaming.
When the first “casual” video game stores opened in the 1990s, I knew right away that I was in trouble.
The casual gaming industry, like so many others before it, had been infiltrated by big corporations that wanted to control the players and the games.
That’s when I found my first real competition, and in that sense, I was never really able to win.
When it came time to find a job, I found that I had no business with video games at all.
The only jobs I could find were as an “artist,” a “designer,” or as a “marketing consultant.”
And because I was too young to be considered an artist, I ended up as a marketing consultant.
But then something very important happened.
In 1998, I met an amazing guy who would become my best friend and mentor for the next few years.
He became the first person I ever went to see after my family lost their jobs.
I had never met him, but when I met him at the video game convention, he was like my uncle.
We were both from a very conservative family, but we all became friends.
And as we talked, I learned that he was a game developer.
I’d seen his games on the internet before, but this time he made me understand that he worked for a video-game company, too.
The next time I went
