While it may seem stereotypical, it stands that many believe that folks who play video games could care less about the election. Wrong.
I was playing last night on Xbox Live and nearly all the discussion between games, and sometimes spilling into games, was about the election. We talked about voting by mail, the lines at the polling places and who we were voting for whom. It was refreshing. Of course there were the idiots who just yelled and played music into their mics to balance out the change of discussion.
Can you believe that some places actually give people time off, with pay for Election Day? I wouldn’t have either. One guy was celebrating this. I think it’s very cool.
