President Donald Trump showed a reel of video game violence last week during a meeting with the game industry as part of an attempt to find solutions to gun violence. And this week, the game industry has responded with an 88-second reel — the same length as Trump’s video — showing the beauty of games.
The video comes from Games for Change, a video game nonprofit that highlights the power of games to change the world. If Trump’s video represented the worst of video games and a reason to blame them for gun violence, this response video could be seen as the best that games have to offer.
“We made it at Games for Change over the weekend,” said Asi Burak, the chairman of Games for Change, in an email. “Its more of a love letter to the industry and to the medium. We hope it contributes to the conversation and demonstrates the beauty and joy of games in a way that is very different from the White House video.”
