About other topics, to better put it there are none that I am even remotely passionate about. Any other topics I would feel I was going through the motions. And not writing about something I feel strongly about.


You must have strange priorities then, if the only thing issue you're passionate about is GameStop opening new games...

You could always go the games causing violence debate.

As another option, you could go with the positive things games do for autism, hand/eye coordination, etc.

Their target should be any video game player, my problems with them could be fixed very simply.

Thats really not true. No one can target 100% of their given market. In fact the larger the market, the more you have to pander to the lowest common denominator. Gamestop can't be run like a podcast or a forum, whose narrow focus allows them to appeal to niche markets.
