"..So assume an Alien of some kind is looking at our world, and is studying what we do for entertainment. They look at bestselling works, and ask people about them because they want to know why everyone likes them. They'd be shocked because they'd be looking around asking people why they like bestsellers like Twilight
or Call of Duty
yet nobody seems to speak up at all. One would come to the conclusion that these fans do not exist, but the figures don't lie because there are obviously fans of these works lurking out there, they just don't seem to speak up for one reason or another."
"...there are a lot of people satisfied with gaming. They just don't speak up because they're too busy playing
the games to be bitching about them on the internet."
