gamers deserve negative respect and should also probably be kept on a list akin to that of sex offenders

i like dynamo's perspective bringing points.

another question is respect from whom? the main stream media? 60+ year olds? video games are still quite new. if someone doesn't understand something there will be a disconnect in general. id be interested to revisit this question when everyone alive was born into the internet age and being old doesn't mean video games are foreign. personally i don't see gamers not getting respect from ppl who understand video games especially during covid

Everyone deserves respect.

I don't understand why someone would deserve more respect.

not everyone who disrespects gamers doesn't understand them but for the vast majority it comes from a place of ignorance and joe rogan would def. qualify as a boomer who doesn't understand the hobby and market. i still like him tho

edit: one word that doesn't get used enough in our culture these days is tolerance. not everyone has the same lvl of knowledge on everything and when we speak our minds it isn't always perfect. im sure there's things i would say to rogan that he would understand better and i hope he would tolerate me as well

we aren't talking about people who play video games/hobbyists, we're talking about a specific identity, aka Gamers, that meet various stereotypes and quite frankly make the rest of us who enjoy video games look bad. you know, the kinds of people who bitch and moan about "politics in video games" when a developer decides to add a female character with dark skin, or the kinds of people who stopped playing wow because the new customization lets you look like an actual black person and black people don't exist in european fantasy. both of those examples are 100% true btw.

idk if they're a vocal minority or what but it seems like every time a video game gets released that even remotely "panders" you can finds these kinds of people in droves
let me be clear, there is no problem whatsoever with enjoying a good video game. there is a problem if you're getting mad at the existence of a gay npc, simply for being gay.

absolutely this pretty much

Additionally--- I would say in general, if your entire personality revolves around one single thing, whether it be video games, Harry Potter, dubstep, Catholicism, etc. then you (general you, not "MML you") are not a well-developed person and probably not super interesting.

I see it all the time on dating sites tbh. Someone's bio will say "I love Harry Potter!! I'm a Hufflepuff with Ravenclaw tendencies " or... "I love The Office! Looking for the Jim to my Pam..." etc. It's boring as fuck and doesn't get me excited about talking to you. Same with gaming.

I'm absolutely for loving niche hobbies! Just be sure you're able to hold conversations about different topics or else it'll get old real fast.

...And like, there's no problem putting hobbies in your dating profile, but "I like Harry Potter!" tells me nothing. We all like Harry Potter. If you wanna put your interests in your profile make it some weird shit. "I like doujin music", "I like slasher films", "I like gemcraft", those at least set you apart from everyone else!

this may be (i.e., hopefully is) true, but the only reason to make a serious post in a thread with this name is to try to clarify the distinction for people who aren't on twitter. (imo)
