->I love this dude who is, as Judd Nelson describes him, a “hot weapons” dealer. Not only does he smuggle his guns by duct-taping them to the insides of arcade machine cabinets, but he’s also the prototypical version of the ’90s long-haired scumbag bad guy on every episode of ''WalkerTexasRanger.'' I just love that this thriving criminal empire is contingent on the continued existence of arcades. Out of curiosity, how many arcades do you think were accidentally blown up when he tried to pack hand grenades into ''{{Dance Dance Revolution}}'' machines?

->To put things into perspective, the movie ''PansLabyrinth'' came out the same year as ''RuleOfRose''. Both are quite similar: they star little girls that have to live in unnatural conditions (the Spanish Civil War, an orphanage) and who escape in a world of make-believe that is potentially even worse than their reality. In either case, whether or not the supernatural elements are real is open to interpretation. ''Pan's Labyrinth'' received Oscars and its director went on to direct Hollywood blockbusters. ''Rule of Rose'' was mostly ignored and the only notoriety is has received was for allegedly being [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer violent kiddie porn]]. It's hard not to see this as a case study for how unfairly games are treated in mainstream media.

->I've read newspaper articles written in the day that said that doctors were concerned that ragtime (the music genre) was a public health hazard, that it would cause heart palpitations, these... uneven rhythms and it would mess with your brain and make you insane.

->My department is rather forward-thinking, but felt videogames, despite their 50 year history, were simply too new to consider. My classmates felt that [[ItIsBeyondSaving videogames were not worth saving]]; that rubbish was best left in the dustbin of history...What has happened is that GG has become an excuse for a generation of videogame archivists to not be trained professionally.

->Just wait until our generation is old enough to be in congress. Then we'll be going after whatever the kids of that generation like without doing the research."''
->''"I'd like to think we'd be a little better than that... but seeing how many people who grew up with their parents going after Music/TheBeatles and Music/ElvisPresley now wigging out over VideoGames and Franchise/HarryPotter... you might be more GenreSavvy than you think.

->His name was Jamie Kellner, and he was the new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Turner Broadcasting Systems [who] stirred up a hornet's nest when he stated, in a 2002 interview, that personal video recorders like [=TiVo=], which allowed viewers to skip commercials, were tantamount to stealing from the networks. If folks didn't watch the commercials that the networks aired, he reasoned, they therefore wouldn't buy any products, and if they didn't buy any products, advertisers would stop paying for future commercials. Strangely, Kellner did not go on a crusade against the remote control.
