If its biggest star is Casper Van Dien we have nothing to worry about.

I think you might be blowing this out of proportion...just a tad. It looks like your typical teen/coming-of-age comedy with all the endemic Hollywood caricatures and stereotypes. I don’t see anything from this preview that casts gaming in a particularly bad light – any more so than your typical flawed, Hollywood protagonist – though as Bitmob and GamesBeat have slavishly documented, online and competitive gaming has made great strides to earn many of these stereotypes – be it the rampant sexism, homophobia, racism, or general immaturity.

It's satire although a very poorly done attempt at it.

Like Lifeequals42 said above its just another stereotypical buddy comedy movie with their take on the gaming community as a backdrop.

I don't think it is supposed to be taken seriously & i don't think it puts gamers in a bad light. Look gamers & video games in general have been put under a microscope lately cause of the violence that has occurred & being blamed for the horrific tragedies involving gun violence.

Although i agree that this is & will be a terrible movie i believe it is okay to make fun of the industry now & than which i think this film is attempting to do.
