SonyRumors - Brien Bell discusses why the passion and community in the gaming industry, despite the vast difference that exist in it are like no other.
"There's something unique about the gaming community, however. You see it in events like Extra Life--in which two of our team members just participated; in the wake of gun violence when gamers--despite being misrepresented by non-games media--symbolically call an internet cease fire in games like Call of Duty and Battlefield; you see it in gatherings like Gamescom and Tokyo Games Show and Blizzcon and PAX. Gaming is a uniting force, it draws people together--whether literally in multiplayer matches, or through the communities formed around systems, developers, internet personalities, or the games we love. SonyRumors is one such community where people come to gather around a brand of product to which they are loyal, and end up finding like-minded fellows, and some really good friends if you're lucky."
