Open Up Gaming!

When I talk about Gaming, I refer to Computer Gaming. I define Gaming as the process from conceptualizing the game, to designing it, implementing it, testing it and releasing it to a community, which makes further modifications (Mods) and makes it even more popular.

The problem is, with people's needs for employment, money and popularity, game developers have forgotten the fact that a game is about having fun, rather about licensing, legal documents thrown around and finally, restricting the user's choice on what he can play it on.

Let us look at the current bitchin' (real bitches) issues in gaming:

I believe the next division occurred when God was there and life existed, and wasn't. Again, 0 and 1.
Now we have three numbers:

1 <- Life
01 <- Life without God
11 <- Life with God

Now, it basically goes on, addi…
