Buffy vs PTA (?!)
Monday, July 18, 2005John Kim responded to my rant on his livejournal. His post is a bewildering apology for traditional games, a kind of case study of his BtVS game, and a vague review of a game he has never played. It's... well, I have no words. You have to go see it for yourself.
I just found it recently. My response is farther down in the comments. I'm trying to engage in a useful dialogue with John, but lately his posts on the various blogs have left me shaking my head in befuddlement. Mr. Kim and I go way back in our Internet discussion history (to the early days of r.g.f.a. circa 1994) so I want to try and keep it going. But man... I'm at a loss right now.
I feel like by pointing out that there are other types of games in the world (and yes, in a somewhat loud, ranting fashion), I have kicked his dog and pushed his mom down the stairs. He is rallying to the defense of things that I enjoy and participate in, as if I was hellbent on their destruction. I can't figure out why.
