Bartle claims victory in battle

I am sure that title is going to annoy someone an awful lot, but never mind. [[Wikipedia:Richard Bartle]] submitted an opinion piece to [[Wikipedia:The Guardian]] today, and as he puts it in his blog it is “Opinionated”.

I like it! I think it is something I had realised and accepted a long time ago (I was born in 1981) games are part of the norm for me. I learnt to program on a [[Wikipedia:ZX Spectrum]] when I was 8, what did I write – computer games of course – pong, breakout, [[Wikipedia:Thunderbirds (TV Series)]], rolling shooters. I even tried to write a Windows like [[Wikipedia:GUI]] in [[Wikipedia:BASIC]] (yes it had some serious design flaws). All of that was normal to me.

In case you missed the link above, here is opinion piece:
