This week’s NME has a big feature about console music games, with people speaking for and against them. But the most entertaining against view comes from journalist David Quantick, which we thought was worth reproducing in full:”Games are not rock’n’roll, they’re metal – aggressive, loud, violent and scared of women. You can’t dance to a game or have sex to it. Games are still for nerds. Rock’n’roll is about f***ing, games are about w***ing. Rock music makes you leave the house and meet drugs, games make you stay in and smell of your own p***.”We put the asterisks in ourselves to preserve innocent Music Ally readers. Quantick, of course, appears to think that gaming culture hasn’t changed since 1983 – as you’d expect of a 47-year-old rock hack. But his comments still made us laugh.(via The Guardian)
