I think gamers need to be more opressed.
People need to be systematically punished for being gamers
You know what? Go ahead and try.
You’re targeting Gamers.
We’re a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a little digital token saying we did.
We’ll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it’s fun.
We’ll spend most if not all of our free time min maxing the stats of a fictional character all to draw out a single extra point of damage per second.
Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same quests over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little detail such that some have attained such gamer nirvana that they can literally play these games blindfolded.
Do these people have any idea how many controllers have been smashed, systems over heated, disks and carts destroyed 8n frustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?
These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our media? We’re already building a new one without them. They take our devs? Gamers aren’t shy about throwing their money else where, or even making the games our selves. They think calling us racist, mysoginistic, rape apologists is going to change us? We’ve been called worse things by prepubescent 10 year olds with a shitty head set. They picked a fight against a group that’s already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they’ve threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can’t is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.
Gamers are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challange us. You’re not special, you’re not original, you’re not the first; this is just another boss fight.
Oh, you call yourself a gamer because you play COD? Bitch PLEASE! I am a gamer, YOU are a Lemming. I’ve got a game from every damn genre, I’ve got FPSs, TPSs, RTSs, RPGs, Racing, Horror, Sims, I’ve even got bloody JRPGs. I’ve got AAAs, indies, art houses, I’ve got prequels, sequels, should never of been made-els, I’ve got standard editions, special editions, collectors editions, Limited editions, legendary editions. I’ve got Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Gameboy pocket, I’ve got X-Box, I’ve got Playstation, I’ve got DLC, I’ve got expansion packs, map packs, weapon pack, content packs, I have something of EVERYTHING! I, and take note, I am a gamer you bloody Lemming, I play real games, no matter the console or genre, that stir real emotion, I play everything from Fallout and Mass Effect, to Gears of war and Assassins Creed, to Banjo Kazooie and viva pinata, to, yes, even Call of Duty. So you shut up, get in line and throw your money at Activision for the same damn shooter every year, so that WE can get PROPER games published, and stop calling yourself a Gamer you self entitled, hate filled, slur slinging little wannabe.
You can’t kill the gamers
The gamers will live on
Christians tried to kill the gamers
But they failed! As they were smote to the ground
Politicians tried to destroy the gamers
But they failed! as they were stricken down to the ground
Feminists tried to kill the gamers
They failed! As they were thrown to the ground
No one can destroy the gamers
The gamers will strike you down with a vicious blow
We are the vanquished foes of the gamers
We tried to win for why we do not know
Journos tried to destroy the gamers, but the gamers had their way
Feminists tried to dethrone the gamers, but gamers were in their way
Christians tried to destroy the gamers, but the gamers were much too strong
Court rooms tried to defile the gamers, but the courts were proven wrong
