Our message is that we'll be watching you. This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in Steam on the other side of Panam's booty. Yet you all come to us Witcher 3 fanboys for hope. How dare you!

You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I'm one of the lucky ones. People Console players are suffering. Base PS4s are dying. Entire subreddits are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!

For more than 30 years, the science has been crystal clear. How dare you continue to look away and come here saying that open world can work with a plot featuring urgency, when the itemisation and balancing needed are still nowhere in sight.

You say you hear us and that you understand the urgency. But no matter how sad and angry I am, I do not want to believe that. Because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act, then you would be evil. And that I refuse to believe.

The popular idea of cutting reactivity in half and half-assing the side content in 2 years only gives us a 50% chance of being sexually successful ingame, and the risk of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control.

Fifty percent may be acceptable to you. But those numbers do not include tipping points, most feedback loops, additional butthurt hidden by toxic trannies or the aspects of equity and social justice. They also rely on my generation sucking hundreds of billions of tons of your bugs out of the game with modding technologies that barely exist.

So a 50% risk is simply not acceptable to us -- we who have to live with the consequences.

To have a 67% chance of getting a branching main quest plus getting laid with our waifu of choice -- the best odds given by the Intergovernmental Panel of RPGs -- the gaming community had 420 niggatons of cope left to emit back on Aug. 28, 2018. Today that figure is already down to less than 50 niggatons.

How dare you pretend that this can be solved with just "business as usual" and some technical solutions? With today's emission levels, that remaining butthurt budget will be entirely gone within less than eight and a half months.

There will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures here today, because these numbers are too uncomfortable. And you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is.

You are failing us. But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say: We will never forgive you.

We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.

Thank you.
