Read the latest “So, You’re A Cartoonist” at the following [link]

I love video games and I believe they are/can be art. But for the past several decades, gamers have been harassing Roger Ebert (a legendary American film critic) because he once publicly said he didn’t think video games were art. Roger never really understood why his opinion of gaming mattered so much to people since he wasn’t a gaming critic. Now that Ebert has passed away, I sincerely hope that gamers can finally let this absurd feud go and leave poor Ebert alone.

Farewell Roger Ebert, may you rest in peace. You will be missed.

I miss Sisel; and then when Roger passed, I wanted to cry. He was an incredibly strong and outspoken man, and we need to leave him alone! I'm a gamer myself and I don't find offence. Everyone has their own opinions; it just so happens that he got famous for his. So let's be a little more respectful for our deceased that has made positive impacts on our society, shall we?
