Thanks: That's also a perspective, but I think buying a package is something I can give back. Meaning also not the present situation and more the past. I'd like to buy the boxed versions for the early consoles for examples. And I look back onto beautiful boxes for System Shock 1 + 2 or Ultima 9 for example. Those are even examples for the ideas and artstyle back the days. Therefore I'm willing to give money and of course for running those classics, with ports and free, libre software itself.
Yes this is not completely free and libre for sure. But it is possible to send those games back into a "sandbox" where they can run. So when I talk about gaming most the time I think of exactly this and the fun running those classics, trying to get them working exactly the way they were meant once released. And of course there are also some interesting indie-titles, but most of the games released now are nothing more than really expensive productions. Good graphics, but is there more behind? Some, but most the time just "more graphics". Some games are to mentioned where the developers did some brave decisions for gameplay and design: Starbound for example and I'd love this game being "free and libre", but it isn't. The entertainment-software is just a good approval why "free culture" is not compatible with capitalism in general because there is this ever growing picture of "more": Money, people involved, more of everything without reflections and the "people" just accept this all without questioning and buy more "hardware" as new games need more "power" (CPU, RAM, graphicscard). Breaking through with this is on possibility and just not ignoring to give something back, speaking about "money" as one but support and favor for free and libre games itself as Minetest for example is one big thing with such wonderful possibilities and there are more of them.
And last but not least: Meaning also to preserve the older titles with toolsets like ScummVM, Wine and DOSBox! I'd love to have all those classics ready for selection without paying anything from sources like archive.org, selectable as wineprefix with all needed, just as an example. But I doubt this will ever happen and sooner or later movies, series, books and yes, also software, will just be one thing: Services to be payed! So the amount of money one could pay decides of accessing different levels being such important for learning - of course not referring to "all games and software in general" - but at last and there we have the case fixed as capitalism always leaves a really big toxic waste and we have not even talked about hatred, greed and so much more coming up with it. The question to the anonymous reader(s) here: Did you ever recognized Netflix and Co. being some big problem? Think again about it when really everything is just behind a "paywall" and some other comparable mechanisms. But that's the thing with idealism and perhaps one day it could be possible to overcome the concurrent situation, because that's what called "modern gaming" is nothing about "playing a game" more about just making money.
Human being in favor with clear principles and so also for freedom in soft- and hardware!
Certainly anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices: For a life of every being full with peace and kindness, including diversity and freedom. Capitalism is destroying our minds, the planet itself and the universe in the end!
