Gamers, ever since our founding, we have prided ourselves on advancing the position that video games are great. We are not neutral on this subject, nor have we allowed ourselves to ever falter in letting the world know that games and the people who play them are awesome. Yet, a recent incident in Agra, India has forced our hand. Earlier this morning, someone spray-painted “GAMERS RULE” across the entire front of the Taj Mahal, and while we generally agree with this sentiment, we have to stand up to say it’s a pretty messed up thing to deface a landmark with this much cultural value.
