Before posting a slew of articles, I feel it is important to lay some groundwork. In-depth articles on concepts and theories shall follow, but today we shall begin with the basics. Today’s focus piece regards a new initiative, recently passed (unanimously!) by the Council of Zig. I briefly considered formatting the below like an actual piece of legislation, but that would have been time-consuming and incomprehensible. I will instead post the summarized version.
The Consumer Protection and Credible Criticism Initiative (CPCCI)
Names are very important; they immediately let us know whether something is good or EVIL. My site will operate under a principle known as the “Consumer Protection and Credible Criticism Initiative”. This means that when a game “journalism” site spreads bandwagon hype, such as declaring the hollow cash-cow God of War III to be a potential “game of the year”, I will make fun of them. This means that when a game critic says something stupid, especially if they try to mask their stupidity with fancy words, I will make fun of them. This means that when a company, be they a major corporation or a backdoor crap-shack homebrew group, tries to trick consumers into buying shamefully underdeveloped products, I will make fun of them.
Such behavior has nothing to do with the pleasure inherent to mocking idiots. I am doing this for the people. I am protecting consumers, and I am promoting credible criticism. No one can argue with such noble motives, especially when those motives are clearly labeled with a noble name. And if one does argue with my motives, I will make fun of them. After all, only a heinous villain would oppose consumer protection or credible criticism.
