1. There are some bizarre things going on with that festival this year, and I’d guess it has to do with the intersection of money and ambition amongst its organizers. They’re apparently hosting Zynga, of all companies, and some sort of farm animal booth promoting Zynga’s charity work. I’m not so sure a regular ol’ corporate PR charity demonstration ought to count as a “Game for Change,” particularly when coming from such a despicable company.

  2. I get the same reaction when reading the name ‘Zynga’ as I do when watching people fall down and hurt themselves in ‘funny’ Youtube videos: kind of a shrinking feeling in my stomach as my testes pull themselves up into my body cavity.

    That’s probably not the sort of reaction they want from people.

    Always. Ruins. Everything.

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you
