Abstract
First paragraph: At the heart of this text is an in-depth exploration of how videogames have become tightly bound into the political and social fabric of popular culture. It is a tale of empowerment, exploitation, globalisation, independence, relationships, and resistance. Historically, it is the story of hobbyists, passionately developing games and honing skills, that have nurtured the global industry of videogaming. Presently, it is a movement for change by addressing exploitation and underrepresentation within an industry that needs players’ input more than ever.
