i don't think this can really be changed, because of how videogames work. whether you're talking old retro games or modern 3d games, both of them are much more abstract than real life. health is essentialized as "hit points" for instance, we don't actually model blood and guns and damage to biological systems, we usually just use a number system, which is an abstract representation of actual health and damage

I'm more interested on seeing what's the best game being made from the two. Between the symbolism dude and Caruso I think I've a good idea of who would win, but then again it's not that hard to know.

It's a pun, guys.

That whole essay was just a big elaborate play on the word "concrete."

As in "abstract vs. concrete" and also "sheet metal vs. concrete."

We all got played, bros.

I enjoy having entirely pointless, yet passionate rivalries. Challenge accept.
