TV>Video games (not)

Posted by Engineer Alexandra Humva , Oct 06 2012 · 238 views

So something I recently came across was that, from my admittedly small sampling of society, there are many who still believe all video gamers are helpless lame nerds, and are told to get a life. This is 2012, so they're a dying breed, but they're still out there and are frequently met. I'm in the American heartland though so maybe I just have a disproportional sampling.

Anyways, my point. Whenever I met these people, they seem content to tell gamers to get a life while spending hours watching reality television or obsessing over football rivalries themselves. Is it really sad for me to spend a decent amount of my time playing strategy games and League of Legends but not for them obsessing over... well, I hate to make jabs at reality television, because karma is a *****.

So, why can't everyone have their own obsessions, and we all can be cool with that? Except for the dangerous ones of course. I tend to discourage obsessions with pyrotechnics on the basis of that being slightly accident prone.

I would think that it is indeed the problem with where you live. Most people I come into contact with tend to play at least mainstream games.

This blog

The following blog contains excessive rambling on the world and extremely poor paragraphing. If you are easily offended or turned off by these two things, leaving now would be a good idea.
This blog is written by Alex Humva, penname of some random teenager named Alex Censored. He writes stories, writes rants, writes screenplays, plays games, makes games, has a terrible work ethic, and is generally sarcastic. He believes in a Judao-Christian god, but most other people who do too give him a glare because of his weird beliefs, possibly because he's somehow bi at the same time. He's an utter equalist who feels that any discrimination amongst humans for things they were born with is wrong. He doesn't care about xenos though, let them all burn.
He's also an aspiring engineer who hopes to get a scholarship at his local big engineering college and one day help humanity. More likely he'll be a pencil pusher in a basement somewhere, but he's a bloody minded optimist.
Because of his peculiar personality and beliefs, he gets into fights often, though they usually end when he wakes up the next morning and doesn't feel motivated anymore.
