the thing i never understood about gamers getting offended at attacks on gamers is that anyone who's spent any time playing games hates gamers
it's exactly like cops, who can't handle any outside criticism but quietly they all hate each other's guts because they're all terrible
@helldude the thing I don’t understand is that unless you’re a pro player or something, gaming is a hobby not an identity in and of itself....
Even back in the day, though, everyone played Mario and Zelda and Sonic. I felt ostracized in 9th grade because I *didn't* have a GameBoy. If there was a gender divide I don't remember one.
I think gamers like to talk about how much gaming has changed, but I don't think the people playing games have changed as much as the fact that for years gaming companies only catered to a tiny slice of those people, and now they're not
@helldude I've played like 2500 hours of Dota and I fucking hate Dota players, which is why I stopped playing like a year ago.
