"Beneath video games' glamorous, pop culture image is a seedy underbelly full of misfits and creepazoids."
ever written on GameDaily.
This has to be one of the stupidest articles I have read. Running out of ideas are we?
Always good to read comments first now I wont waste my time you know besides commenting
It's amazing that this article basically describes and makes fun of the people that gave the authors a job. Those people that "creep" us out are also the people that keep the industry alive and booming. I mean, I can't stand all the fanboy battles on message boards, but they do support their consoles very heavily. Waste of space for gamedaily.
They do have some points though....
especially about the insulting racist jerks and anger management cases you run into online - I don't enjoy those so called gamers.
I say so called because I don't include them in my definition of Gamer and why should my enjoyment be limited by idiots like them...
I always have wished for a meta level kick function - kicks the idiot offline forever - based on number of kick votes garnered across all games.
I've noticed that people only get like this whenever the truth to some extent comes out. Look, I've always been ready to bust someone out on the fact that they whine like little b1tches whenever somebody beats them in a game, or when someone goes on a racist tirade in Halo 3 because someone got the drop on them...these are the people who shouldn't deserve to play games. I'd leave the cosplayers and fanfiction poeple alone, though, they're just being creative and expessing it, not necessarily being an inconvienence to anyone or themselves, unlike fanboys and ranters.
All you gotta do is remember that in gaming, like EVERYTHING else in the world, has it's share of douchebags and retards that have nothing better to do than try to make everyone else's good time as miserable as possible.
