ASocial not Anti-Social  “I’m sure there’ll be many amazing social applications for VR, but isolation is so powerful. We shouldn’t just look at the isolating potential of games as negative. They can offer something really important and positive; something that really helps people in their lives. Or just a nice place to be alone; really alone.”

  1. Are you ASocial gamer? Is that okay to be? Maybe you have social mood swings. Maybe I’m a bi-polar social gamer.  Yes yes and yes

All about their rep “negative social media sentiment, which was an issue last year, has virtually evaporated”. – meaning gamers may hate, but are willing to forgive.. But that also translates into real dollars. Feb 2016 trailer of COD had everyone screaming WHY?!!!! And that reflected in a drop in stock price last Christmas 2015 of almost $40 a share to a dismal $28 in Feb 2016. – Now that the COD WWII trailer reveal Activision is sitting over $54 a share and I’m sure are VERY relieved.

    1. Treyarch & Activision are remastering 8 classic Zombie maps from Call of Duty Zombies: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Buyer’s remorse? Or just a test drive? Steam currently handling 50,000 refund requests per day

Just the latest to run into an example where the free market would be better.
