Child’s Play

Tuesday, January 6, 2004

Wil is trying to raise some publicity for a very generous act performed by a group of gamers. The readers of Penny Arcade donated over $200,000 worth of toys and games, and over $27,000 in cash to the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Now, I’m not a fan of Penny Arcade. I want to be, badly, because I hear over and over how funny it is. Then I go read it. It’s not funny. I’ve tried over and over again in the hope that it will be funny, but it never is. Maybe if I were into video games, that would make it funny.

Despite that, I think it’s great what they did, not just for the children’s hospital, but for the reputation of gamers.
