I hear you on the "gamer guys" the "bro gamers".Jimothy Sterling said:Gamer Guys
Jimquisition travels to another time and another place, examining a world taken over by gamer guys and their testosterone-addled inanity. Something must be done!
I know some of the video was suppose to be jokes, but the method of calling people out and saying they aren't gamers, isn't exactly a perfect one. Heck I had never even heard of the game you said that the guy on facebook didn't know about.
I've been gaming for 23 years of my 27 year life, and I've definitely haven't seen or heard it all. Plus, obscure Japanese games have never been my thing, not really from the lack of interest, but from lack of funds for collecting and brain space to remember all aspects of gaming I come into contact with. Heck I've read and watched tons of articles and videos on "retro games", and I still learn things and see games I hadn't heard of.
Gaming and games are just so large a medium that I think there really aren't many certain questions that can be asked that are truly fair to determine who is a gamer and who is leech along for the blood-sucking ride. I would think a quiz would be in order, though the problem would be that it has to be administered where the person can't look things up on the internet. Though I think that "friend" of yours on Facebook showed how much of a true "gamer" he is, by not even faking that he knew it by making a quick Google search, because some gamers can get embarrassed(not that they need to be) that they don't know something about their hobby, that they will search for the answer so they can give it to try and hide their ignorance of certain gaming minutia.
But again, I'm rambling and going to deep into this.
