    *sigh* Gamers these days...

    They complain so much of elitism and "What a game should be"...

    You know what a game should be? Fun. Satisfying.
    You know what makes you elite? NOT playing a game. -_-

    Playing games doesn't make you a champion of the world.
    Going outside and knowing which are the best restaurants make you a champion.
    Going outside and winning a medal makes you a champion.
    Creating something new for everyone to use makes you a champion.
    Cleaning your damn room makes you a champion!

    Not playing games! Y'know why? Cuz playing games IS A BREAK FROM the reality around you!

    Until video games affect the immediate reality around us, you can't be an elite in a video game!



    Go ahead and defend "the meaning of elitism", it just makes it sadder that you're trying to be "the champion of doing nothing".

    Gaming is a resting-sport. It shouldn't be anything more unless it changes enough of the world around it. ...and so far, the only thing it's affecting enough of - is the military. Yet the military doesn't completely support the entire industry of video games, henceforth, doesn't matter yet.

    ....... you CAN be proud of doing awesome things in games. But it doesn't make you better than anyone else.

    Get over yourself.

    As a gamer myself, I agree. There are thigns in games that I've done which i want to record and post on youtube, but that's about it.

    But i agree with the whole going outside thing. If you want to know where to get the best Philly Cheese Steak around the Westchester/putnam county border, you come to me.
    Why hello there!

    It depends on the gamer him/herself... going out and attempting to win a medal vs trying to become the champion of a video game is choice... if i chose to try to be the best at a video game most likely theres a reason behind it... but some gamers do take it too seriously and your right it doesnt make them better than anyone else...
    Emotions tend to lose their strength when put in words, So I prefer to speak only what is absolutely necessary..

    I agree for the most part. While I am not trying to defend them, I still think that sometines people should get a little praise for doing things in games (like get the katana in Halo 3). A lot of those things are crazy-hard to do, and I mean seriously crazy-hard. BUT, I also agree that that it doesn't make you better IRL (in real life, for all you newbs). Yes, you may have gotten all the achievements for Army of Two, but I have a life (no offense if you do, just using an example). I mean, one of my most favorite things to do is hike.
