7 ways gamers are ruining it for everybody

MyGaming's Tarryn van der Byl writes: "In theory, gaming should be mostly about playing games. It’s that simple. It should be, anyway, but in practice, it’s so much more than that. Sometime in between the 1947 introduction of the cathode ray tube amusement device and whatever major console exclusive was most recently the subject of Metacritic review bombing, gaming became a soapbox for the kind of rabid rhetoric that is better suited to a full-scale invasion of another planet."
