Well, okay, so John Tynes‘ much-talked-about piece for Salon probably won’t end up saying that, laying the blame (blame? For the “death” of a company that still dominates the gaming industry and seems to be headed for profitability again in the near term?) on mere corporatism instead. But that cliffhanger ending is something, isn’t it? This article, even if it does read something like all the dot-com post-mortems, ought to do some deserved violence to what remains of the Gamer Stereotype.
