I kept hearing people complain about this article. Now that I’ve finally read it, I love every single word of it. Finally, someone explained in detail what I’ve been trying to express since fucking 2002.
There is no reason anymore to even have a concept of “gamers.” Playing video games is as normal and crosses as many demographics as watching movies, listening to music or reading books, so why the fuck do so many people not only insist on identifying as “gamers,” but being territorial about it? Territorial enough to get angry when games are critiqued in any way they don’t personally care about, and territorial enough to get angry when an article like this suggests that maybe playing games doesn’t make anyone extra special.
