The Beef Series

   0


I've been around D-toid for a little bit now, at least "socially" around, and while I love the community, actually communicating with a variety of people about games and the industry has made me come to the realization that there are some things I genuinely hate about it. This kind of gave me the idea to vent about it with a series instead of trying to cram it all into one post. I will try to spread it out and give myself some time to organize my thoughts without trying to be too over-bearing about them. The more I think about these issues there's a lot of these more "real world" parallels I could draw (though I probably won't) that just comment on things in general regardless of the industry, but make them more palatable for me to communicate in the trappings of gaming and gaming culture.

This is just a rough outline of the topics I plan to discuss so feel free to check back if you feel like reading my rants in the future. These also aren't in any specific order.

1. "Entitlements" and why I put it in quotations
2. The Divide - 'Casual' vs 'Hardcore' and my hatred of MP communities
3. Hipsters and game snobs
4. "We had it first!" and why it is different than number 3 (I realize this is ambiguous)

Feel free to throw possible ideas in the comments on things I could 'socialize' about if I feel the inspiration.

About Konneryone of us since 12:18 AM on 09.29.2010

I've played video games ever since I can remember. My fondest memories are playing Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time on the SNES with my brother, but that's all negligible stuff next to my love for music. If it's music, chances are I find some way to love it, and I take in anything I can. I play multiple instruments, and I guarantee you I have better music taste than anyone you know. Oh, and I'm also pretty opinionated.
