Quote: "Gaming’s great, right?
In the real world, we might compare gaming to that really cool guy everybody knows who makes for great company, gets on with everyone, and is never shy to take over a conversation and just entertain anyone around. Gaming is, in that way, the social butterfly of entertainment. But in this analogy, what exactly does that make us, the gamer? If not some friend to gaming, are we then some overly obsessed fan instead?
When you think of it like that, the fervent passion with which gaming is treated seems almost ridiculous. It would be on stalker level, borderline restraining order level if gaming were an actual person, but somehow it’s alright to dote over it and cause actual, legitimate rifts with other people simply because they don’t agree with you and your way of thinking.
