Summary/Abstract: This text is a response to ‘The Game Studies That Have not Been: A Polemic with Aspekty funkcjonowania gier cyfrowych we współczesnej kulturze [Aspects of the Functioning of Digital Games in Contemporary Culture] by Katarzyna Marak and Miłosz Markocki’ – an article by Stanisław Krawczyk, Piotr Sterczewski and Mateusz Kominiarczuk. These authors criticize two out of seven chapters in our book. Our response mostly takes up the small number of substantive issues raised in their review, but we also set straight numerous inaccuracies that result from their incomplete understanding of our book, which is due to their selection of passages to analyse outside the context of the book as a whole
