The gaming industry has grown significantly over the last few years. There is a huge problem with a mass market. The problem is that the masses are generally ignorant. Look at the music, movies, television. They cater to people who can't appreciate or comprehend anything deeper than what they are hearing or seeing. You can't really blame them though. People have more important things to do than gain a vast appreciation gathered through experiences in an entertainment medium. Or they don't really have anything better to do, but choose not to. Good for them. My problem with them comes in when there is this delusion of knowledge. People who limit themselves to or have only had a handful of experiences yet claim to know what "the best" is.
There is also the delusion that different opinions don't carry different weight. It is true that people have their own preference, which is something I can respect. J-RPGs don't personally do anything for me. That said, you will rarely, if ever, see me go on about what makes one better than another. A person who’s played over 100 J-RPGs is someone who's opinion on them means a whole lot more than mine, a person who's only played a small handful.
My hate for gamers stems from the people jumping on board to gaming now as the market grows. These people who are highly inexperienced in games have played the latest games that cater specifically to them and not much else. And as with mass markets go, the people being catered to think they know what "the best" is and fall back onto "well in my opinion…etc" when their opinion means less than shit due to their lack of experience. And everyone's fucking played the original Super Mario Brothers, bragging about that is like bragging about peanut butter and jelly to a Master Chef (lol getz it!?). Playing that one game 20 years ago doesn't make anyone well rounded.
It's not exactly the ignorance that gets me. No one has ever been born knowing everything. It's the conviction and dedication to ignorance.
So when you read that I hate gamers, don't take it personally. Unless, you know, I just described you.
