It was an aspect that many gamers not only enjoy, but slather over and dedicate great attention to, investing stupendous levels of emotion, time and effort. They would do it from dawn to dusk, then to dawn again, fuelled only by easy eats and an unquestionable bipolar glory-rage that confuses those that spectate it. That aspect was online gaming. I don’t mean all online gaming of course. The thrill of playing with others in a competitive environment in games such as Mario Kart, or the teamwork that came with co-op games added a dimension to a possibly stagnating title."
