If there's one thing I'm most thankful to GDQ for (other than the millions of dollars it raises for charity, of course), it's how it shows the immense power games in particular have in the real world. Games make us want to break high scores, and that high score can be a donation total just as it can be a record time in Super Metroid. Games are how we can harness excitement and competitiveness and turn them into accomplishment. And what a thing we have accomplished here this week. I am so proud of everyone who believes in games.Oh yeah, and kill the animals.
