I'm a custom controller and body driven games enthusiast and see videogames as an important socialization tool

You can see video games in line with the framework of knowledge and beliefs that divide our working time from our free time, the space of politics from our daily life, the space of cultural institutions from the space of the market, or the rationality of society from the emotional languages of the body.
Or you can take video games to break all these borders and redefine the sense and the direction of your relations with the other and with things; the value of your conflicts, of your being different, of your way living in the world, simply put: to build it.
