Issues about fan labor, peripheral game development, and bootlegs games are increasingly becoming important topics to me, and this paper touches upon a lot of concepts and ideas I find interesting.

I hope it’s an interesting article for you all and (hopefully) I’ll have more articles to share in the future.
