How do we fix gaming culture? MOBA games and esports have completely destroyed any genuine enjoyment that could have been extracted from this once thriving industry. Now any neckbeard or hobbit girl can venture out from their basement and meet likeminded people at their toxic "conventions" so they can make money off of streaming their shitty speedruns and make disgusting meme jokes that would leave them humiliated if they were to do it anywhere else on this planet. Anyone who takes part in these activities are complicit in a literal crime against humanity. It's like Bolshevism, it spreads and it can't be strangled in its crib. Is genocide the answer?
Oh it's too late for that my friend, far too late.
I think I see what you mean, but, doesn't the fact that LoL/Dota2 are filling stadiums during tournaments prove you wrong? You could also say that the popularity of e-celebs on youtube/twitch is only proving that people DO care, enough so to spend their leisure time watching streams and letsplays etc.
>Nobody who actually likes games cares about gamer "culture"
You have the wrong definition of gamer culture, then. Gamers had fucking culture, and they weren't the people buying fatality branded motherboards.
Great question youngling. Due to the ever increasing popularity of video games they have had an effect on popular culture itself. If you identify as a "gamer" you are apart of the gaming culture. The rise in popularity in video games goes hand in hand with the internet, which gave birth to online multiplayer, which in turn has added growth to the social networks that gamers dwell in.
JUST BY POSTING ON /V/ YOU ARE APART OF THE GAMING CULTURE.
Each of them have their own sub cultures. Each of which stem from different sub cultures.
The product promotes the culture. Which in turn promotes more products. I don't get what you're trying to point out, you're just agreeing with me.
I just play video games and sometimes discuss them with others, specially here since I don't have to jump through sign up shit and climb the social ladder to have anyone read my latest thread.
Couldn't care less about anything about the rest, I don't like Pewdiepie so I just won't watch him. Instead you autists need to stalk everything you hate and care more about that than enjoying what you like.
