Video Game Snobbery; Leave it Behind

Sean Halliday writes:

''There’s an odd sense of snobbery going around at the moment. People are looking down at others for playing certain video games, and for once, it’s not Call of Duty. It’s a video game franchise that has helped craft many fond memories for a whole plethora of people, a staple for many childhoods all over the world–Pokemon.'' (Culture, Pokemon X and Y)

Sadly, our sub-culture will forever be rife with snobbery and elitism. It's silly really. Let's just play the games, people.

It seems so :( but with that being said i suppose it applies to most forms of media

I completely agree. It's simply ridiculous the amount of hate that is expressed based on the fandom of a gamer. Obviously there are games I'm not fond of, but its almost childlike that people mock the players of games they dislike. For example, the feud between the Xbone and PS4 is baffling to me, get the system you want and enjoy it, but stop ridiculing those that don't share your opinion. However, it is comforting to know I'm not the only one fed up with this.

Sure why not but most games now-a-days just get milked to hell!

Here's how I view it.
Everyone who has given me rude comments for playing certain video games are sitting behind a monitor with a wacky username.
When you're dealing with rude comments on the internet from random people, it's very easy to ignore them.

i'm snobby about crappy movies, tv shows and books - i dont see video games should be exempt from that. some stuff is trash.
