    I totally agree. Most people think that since they know how to play good, they are elite, which is a load of garbage. I good at games. I mastered some games in less than 30 minutes. I beat RPGs in 1 day that would take most people weeks to do. Heck, I have the achievement for killing 100k in Gears of war 2 in 6 days. But I do not consider myself Elite. I just good at games. And I have a life as well, (I apologize in advance if this offends anyone...) I really cant see myself as one of those people playing tons of games for countless hours at a time, not doing S**t with their life, watching as all the good things in life pass them by.

    You mean, like, letting games pass by for instance?

    Seriously, that whole 'I got a life' stuff is annoying ... If they feel good when playing games, let them be. If you like playing games, go on. Who cares if someone feels good after finishing a game. If that's what that person wants to do, if that's what makes him/her feel better, why not. When that person finishes a game or is real good at it, he/she might get praised by others who play that game. Of course that'll make him/her happy and that's okay like that. If he/she starts feeling elite then, whatever ... Who cares.
    Writing mystery novels is a breakout from reality too. If someone is good at writing them, I'm happy with it, and I'd encourage him to go further, even if he won't make money with it. I wouldn't tell him that he got no life.
    So why is it so important for everyone to 'have a life' anyway? It's not like you have no life playing videogames. There are many things which turn out bad if you do/consume too much of it, which let good things pass by. Not just videogames.
    You are now breathing manually. :P

    OK, I see your point lapis, and I respect it fully. But I think that I wasnt fully clear on what I meant in my previous post. I didnt mean to say that if you play games all the time and do nothing else, that you have no life. Cause if that the case, I would be a hypocrite, cause that was me before I had a job. But I meant for those people that stay on for long periods at a time, and show their trophies/achievments/etc. like anyone cares. For example...........ok i got one.

    pokemon diamon/pearl (i know crap example XD). The 3 event only pokemon (darkrai, arceus, and saymin) were publicly release just recently. But I see people showing off theirs now like they are so pro. Just because they were too eager too wait and and had to use a AR or trade it online. If people want to play like there is no tomorrow, then thats fine by me. Who am I to judge? But if if im playin a game online just tryin to lvl up, talking with friends, or just there to kill time, the last thing I want to hear is....
    "OH!!! I got the rarest item in the game!! I dont see you with it, so you are a noob!!!1111" Or some crap like that. If you think you are pro, ok then. But the rest of the online community might not care about you and your "L33T" status.

    Okay, I agree with you on that point, that example points it out very well! (:
    Of course, such guys are a nuisance ... people who feel better by making others feel worse. But we get to see guys like that everywhere ... I mistook your comment above, I didn't thought you alluded to this kind of gamers. That about settles it.
    You are now breathing manually. :P

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.
    Praise is fine. Elitism isn't.
    It goes the same for every kind of "clique" there is.

    *Nothing's wrong with being rich, or for being proud of your work, or even separating yourself for safety - but to separate your group away from society and to look down on the rest of the world, not cool - they wouldn't be there if it weren't for us.

    *Nothing's wrong with being a super chef, to be able to have the ability to create such masterpieces of cuisine - but to say that the "common food" is "pig's food" and to claim that those who eat it have no sense of taste, awful - maybe they're these foodies and gourmets are the ones with a problem with taste.

    *Nothing's wrong with being a movie-lover and having watched a billion movies - but to say that the common movie-goer is ill-knowledged and doesn't deserve to even lay eyes on the movie screen, retarded - nothing awesome about being the master of trivia (it just makes you entertaining).

    *etc

    I got a problem with elitism on all sides of society.
    But being a gamer myself, this is what the topic turned out to be.

    Yeah, I know such guys. The type of guys who can't loose ... If they do, it sure is someonelse's fault. Just forget about them and don't take it too seriously ... (:

    Never blame others when you fail.
    You only have yourself to blame.

    ...or my luck, actually.
    I only get angry at either
    A) Bad Teamwork
    B) AWFUL luck

    A) ...I usually join the losing team - why? Cuz I like to keep things fair. I may suck compared to the "elites", but I can still help.
    But they're usually the losing team for a reason... cuz they never work together. ;_; I clear a perfect spot for a defense, and realize that all my teammates went the other way - WHERE THE AMBUSH WAS!!! ***********!!!!!

    B) T_T Those who don't believe in bad luck has never seen me play. I have the worst luck anyone has ever seen in gaming history.


    Though.... you CAN blame hackers. There are hackers/glitchers in the game who make the game completely unfair. T_T GAMES HAVE TO BE FAIR PEOPLE! IT'S WHAT MAKES IT FUN!!!

    ^_^ Ignore sore-losers, the best way to get back at them is to keep killing them. They usually keep begging the host to kick me cuz "I hack" , and eventually the host gives in and kicks me.
    Sure it isn't fair, but it's ****ing hilarious to see how angry they can get!
