On Entitlement: Are Gamers Whiners, or Just Passionate?

Just when you thought the word ‘fanboy’ had gone away and gamers could have conversations without throwing trite slurs at each other, there’s a new villain in town: ‘entitled’. It crops up so frequently and in such differing contexts that it has lost all meaning. It’s a bit like saying “the the the” repeatedly until the melted brains dribble out of your ears.

‘Entitled’ is like ‘fanboy’, acting as a literary klaxon: a word of warning to the reader that things will get ugly. It has appeared in Edge, Forbes, GamesIndustry and even Nightmare Mode, and it’s time we look at what we mean by ‘entitlement’ before we continue branding gamers with it.

Us gamers are just passionate about the franchises that we enjoy and don't wanna see them ruined

Whiners, definitely whiners.
