    Gaming is the ultimate meritocracy.

    I don't give a shit what your gender is.
    I don't give a shit what nation you were born in.
    I don't give a shit what religion you have.
    Political views? Don't care. Skin color? I wouldn't even know unless you made a point to tell me. Age? The least important number.

    What matters is
    1) How proficient are you?
    2) Are you able to communicate effectively?
    3) Are you willing to follow a team based strategy?

    Fuck I'll even take a feminist if she meets those criteria.

    People don't get to blame white privilege when they fail. Either you were up to par, or you weren't.

    I would up with a squad of Mexicans and Portugese. We all got along because in gaming nobody gives a fuck.
    Is this still revelant?

    i can't agree with number 2, especially when comes to team based shooting games like on overwatch competitive and getting horrible teammates that keeps running off on their own to get killed and then those idiots point fingers at other people so they don't have to take the blame for losing. it's very stressful having to deal with idiots while trying to have fun and win.

      Then who you told it's mandatory to play online bro? Gaming essentially was made for fun and entertainment and the idea of online gaming came far after that. Play according to your entertainment, whether you prefer it playing offline or online.

    • i never said it's mandatory, i said "when it comes to team based games like overwatch competitive" i didn't say it's mandatory. i play other single player games as well like dying light, rise of tomb raider, batman arkham knight, and etc etc.

    I agree with these to an extent.
    I've played games my whole life, but I still say you shouldn't let yourself get absorbed completely into gaming. I've witnessed tons of gamers who just can NOT interact normally with people online and they carry that offline in some cases.

    It actually creates depression by giving you loads of instand gratification and a feeling of success, which in the real world you'd have to work much harder for, over time creating exaggerated expectations that the real world will disappoint.

    Everything in moderation. Video games rock my world.
  • ryancg
    That's great and all, but I just enjoy playing video games. However, I would never call myself a "gamer" because I kinda hate the modern gamer.
  • RandyCarter
    Not sure about hand eye coordination in my case. I think I handle my cell phone like a wet bar of soap.
  • JDavid25
    I gotta say I don't agree wit this.. I'm nowhere near a gamer, but I do have a love for the aesthetic of video games, and video games themselves..
