We welcome all in the discourse of culture at GI

Editor-in-chiefThe East Asian issue is a favorite of mine when it comes to annual Gaming Insurrection issues.

We began it in 2Q2013 as a highlight for all things Japan. At first, it focused only on the Land of the Rising Sun, but in later years we’ve branched out to look at our favorite things from other East Asian nations such as China and South Korea. We look at music, food, video games, movies and anime — all forms of pop culture that we may or may not have to import to enjoy.

The love we have for culture — all, not just our own — is expressed in the way we do things around here at GI. We lovingly admire others and highlight their contributions, and we are sensitive to others as well. It’s just the right thing to do. So, when you read things here in our GI issue, please keep in mind that we are highly open-minded and cognizant of what it means to uplift other minorities. We would love the same done for us, and our learning of the world around us is paramount to the foundation of GI.
