Video Game Snobbery; Leave it Behind

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.
