This used to be a post where I lamented the growing popularity of Infinity and complained about it possibly becoming the game of choice for people I’d rather not play with. I have since deleted the article. It was written in the weeks just before I wound up the blog, I was in a very bitter place when I wrote it, and I like to think – I hope – that it wasn’t like me at all. I have always tried to have a positive voice in my blogging about gaming because games are supposed to be positive things.
So you’ve been spared the pessimistic rant. Instead I’d like to say a couple of things:
First of all, Infinity is a great game and I wish the people at Corvus Belli all the success in the world. I would be more than happy if the game really took off. Genuinely. I apologize for the uncharitable and unnecessary opinion I expressed earlier. If for some reason you haven’t heard of Infinity and you like the sound of a quality anime-themed skirmish miniatures game then look no further.
Secondly, who am I to judge anyone? I barely have time to play anyway, am unlikely to ever play anyone unpleasant, and even if I do so what? We all have to deal with jerks in life at various times and places, and sometimes we even are those jerks. Why should I expect gaming be any different?
So that’s it. I’ve also deleted the comments, so sorry to all the people who took the time to respond to my er . . . poisonous whinge.
I kept the picture of the hipster hobbits because I think it’s funny.
Have a good one,
