This 'Gamer Song' is just as good as you think

Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance!

German YouTuber ForbiddenNickname clearly loves videogames. So much so that he has penned what I'm sure he feels is the greatest gamer anthem in the history of ever. Your mileage may vary.

In what is some sort of weird hybrid between Rammstein and Kidz Bop, FN opines on all the rhyming ways he is a gamer -- such as "I'm a rocker/I'm a S.T.A.L.K.E.R.":, and "I'm a wizard/I love Blizzard" -- all to a pseudo-techno crunch. I especially love the way his Nerf gun shoots fire in time to the beat. The visuals are decidedly low-tech, but there is a random guy in a pale mask and rain slicker, so that makes it more German, I guess.

In all honesty, I see what he's trying to do here: write an actual anthem to the culture he loves, but something about it just doesn't sit right. Honestly, there's no way to do this and not come off corny as all get out, even with the language barrier. "I'm a nerd/I'm a bird," indeed.

Also...does flamer mean something else overseas? The chorus of "I'm a gamer/I'm not a lamer/I am a flamer" sounds odd to me, especially finishing it as he does by stretching out the syllables in the last line to "I am a Gay-mer" (yes, it's spelled that way in the lyrics). I mean, I don't speak German, so if he has already come out on one of his other videos, good on him. Just seems odd randomly stuck into the chorus of a song about generalized gamer tropes.

Regardless, I think he might have a sense of humor about it, if the Batman line is any indicator...though he has mercifully turned off comments.

Oh Germany...you so wacky!
