Doesn’t it just make your blood boil, the way grown-ups talk about computer games?
pc gamers? or consoles gamers? or both? I am lean towards one side.
Indeed console gamers have ruined gaming , well not for long as the PC renaissance will take over and console gamers will be left behind in their basements eating cheesy poofs, while mastercheifing to how many polygons nathen drakes nipples has.
here is a prime choice example of fool ruining everything
lol beat my chief!
No. I think I would have to care what they say in general first.
What a shitty article. "It’s a small minded opinion, but who can blame him (or her)?" I can. Small minded people won't magically change their opinion even if gamers do change, because their opinion is based on vague assumptions of what they think gamers are like- not actual information based on people they have met.
Article summary: The media stereotype gamers in a very negative way and that is bad. Then the article writer (web media) blames gamers for the stereotypes by stereotyping gamers in a very negative way.
I find this article kind of insulting. I consider myself a gamer and i dont fit into any of those supposed "needs to be different" I live my life. I go to work. I pay my bills. I play games in my freetime(more than anyone else I know) That doesnt mean i ostrisize myself from others or have a need to look like a punk rocker or anything else this douche said. What an idiot! Way to alienate your audience. Hey you guys are a bunch of over indulged pretentuous morons. Thanks mabey Ill have to read more of your articles. Jackass.
I don't differentiate myself as a gamer. Actually, I think I myself look exceptionally normal. The way I see it is some people might be out doing drugs, getting drunk or having extremely boring conversations about gardening or any combination of the above, while instead, I choose to engage in an interactive game which is a lot of fun and completely harmless. It's a great hobby that I can honestly say gets better every day. People only criticise things they don't understand.
How people like this guy is ruining gaming.
I'm still waiting for the article titled "How Video Games "Journalism" Is Ruining Games."
Maybe PC gamers should stop pirating.
PC Piracy is the main reason?
Ya it is the main reason.
I'm so tired of these wannabe journalists blaming the gamers for ruining gaming that I am not even going to dignify this article with a click. Gamers aren't ruining gaming, cooperate greed and fear are.
Gamers are not a generation, an occupation, a social circle, a class, an ethnic group or a people. It's not even a social movement or a style. It's just a freaking entertainment hobby, so get over it already. It's not an identity, nor should it be. It's what you like to do with some of your free time. That's all. We are not one flesh or any silly dramatic crap like that. We are not a family. We are not all the same. This article is written by yet another clueless guy who thinks he is writing for the minor leagues of Rolling Stone or a culture magazine. It's a waste of time. It's a futile exercise in clueless stereotyping. It's trying to build trends from a few anecdotes. Stop it. It's dumb. It will ALWAYS be dumb. Let it go. Move on.
You have one single bubble, and you did not waste it. Good job, well said.
