If blackds wishes to save $400 and saves $80 while Pichu wishes to save $300 and saves $60. Who has saved the larger percentage of their overall goal.

Answer: Neither, they both have 20%

Sorry for an extraordinarily lame joke, but I just thought it was a funny coincidence.

On topic, "Games as culture" sounds like a really cool idea. Begs the question, what do we use it for? I'm maybe thinking it's for posting cool game art or perhaps talking about games in the same way we speak about books or film as a cultural influence. Whatever the hell it's intended purpose is, I hope it ignites some cool conversations.

We will all praise this man for saving our lives and buy him a mountain of stuffed animals.
