When I tell people that I write about gaming and technology, they’re usually pretty shocked. Is there some unwritten rule that gamers need to be as nerdy as possible?
"With gamers across the globe winning a silly amount of money in various gaming competitions, it’s only a matter of time before gamers either rule the world or are considered to be the “cool kids” at high school." lol no. I think the author is being a bit unrealistic.
I think the internet has helped a lot of previously "uncool" hobbies achieve some notoriety (and maybe respect). I remember when being a gamer and an RPG buff was the nerdiest of the nerdy. Now, you can find so many other people with your interests, celebrating it proudly and that's ok.
I dunno. When I am at the gym and talk to the other guys they are dumbfounded that I play video games as a hobby, build my own gaming PCs, and shun sports. :/ I think the stereotype still exists because even I have to admit that most of the "gamers" I know fit the stereotype more often than not.
i know eh, i guess they can't see us with muscles playing games, it would seem unusual to them lol
Sport fanatics(not gaming sport) and many gym going peeps dont get it.
Sorry I have a high metabolism, not a fatty.
High five. Hate the people that say you're fat then you tell them you're not then they say you're anorexic.
Hahaha honestly I am a bit skinny, I can barely keep my weight with 3000 calories a day. Abnormally high metabolism.
Yeah they have changed, into a**holes who hide behind the internet. Wait... They haven't changed!
