From gamewithabrain.com comes a list of reasons casual gamers dislike certain hardcore gamers and games:
"Sure, a lot of the mistrust between gamers and non-gamers comes from simple miscommunication, but that doesn't mean some points aren't valid. Below are 25 popular (and not so popular) reasons why gamers annoy those who don't play games."
"I'm on a strange alien world stranded alone with only an artificial intelligence program to keep me company? Yes, that's riveting. Wait, there's a second, even more dangerous alien race out there? Big shocking twist there!"
"Look, the only clans I know of are in Braveheart and Mississippi Burning. I don't want to join either. I think it's great you have a little club of online friends to play games with, but I mostly quit joining clubs when I graduated high school. No offense."
"Sure, it can play Blu-Rays, but I'm not a movie nerd, either. $600 is an awful lot to blow on something to play video games, and spending $2,000 on eBay for the same $600 system is even weirder. There's a good reason the Wii is the best selling system."
