pessimism: Big game companies lose their roots and sense of gamer-ism. they've become too pompous to allow the debate to fall outside of their court (no pun intended). even though Quake is their own game, it's no more their field of expertise than a grilling competition would be for the big-wigs @ McDonalds lol.
idealism: we should solve all conflicts, especially those between countries, by holding massive FPS or RTS competitions. see below.
realism: would be good until the hackers show up i guess :-P
