@StuOhQ I understand what you mean like people who enjoy movies don't have to know silent film classics but moviebuffs often do and watch them and I know that the C64 was a thing and that's all that should matter because I don't have to play it or know the titles of games you could play on it to validate myself as a gamer, hardcoee or otherwise.

I consider myself a game because I play a broad spectrum of titles for more than 20 hours a week. Some are competitive. Some are casual and I've been playing games literally since I was 2 years old. Including some learning games for the PC my father showed me. I played every major console in the US besides any PC types except for the Sega Saturn. What I'm basically saying is that games been a Parr of my life forever. I grew up near the start of the console gaming systems like Nintendo and Sega and PlayStation. I wouldn't know what to do without video games. And there are kids like that whose earliest system is probably the PlayStation or the Xbox and theyve played games all their life with probably no access to any other console. At that age, those kids can only know about wbat theur parents buy into the hkuse. My friend has never owned a Nintendo product in her life albeit she knows what one is cuz she is my friend but there are other people who probably never experienced it and would not know what it is.

I think for the most part gaming is more than just knowing the oldest system and I wouldn't call someone a true gamer just for knowing that. Its more of a lifestyle in my opinion and if you have a passion for gaming, you should be considered a true gamer.

Gamephile (like cinephile) is what I'd call that person who knows those things simply to know rather than those that actually experienced it.

@StuOhQ I disagree with this. I know it existed and I know people played games on it but I wouldn't recognize one if I saw it and I don't think that matters. It doesn't make anyone less than a gamer. If you're interested fine, but actually thinking that one is superior because they know about systems they didn't even own or play is foolish. Not everyone has to take interest in gaming bistort to appreciate modern day games.

A gamer is a person who plays games. Plain and simple.

@KromCompany they didn't grow up with it so what. You knowing all that doesn't mean a thing either. They don't have to know or care about the old or original consoles to be able to play games. There aren't people buying CDs going, "oh gee I like this band but you.know records and stuff" or using their phone while knowing how to use or even what a rotary phone is. It doesn't make them stupid they just simply don't know because they weren't really exposed to it.

You can like and appreciate gaming consoles all the way to their start but I don't think other kids should or have to.

But I do agree with you about that girl with the phone case. Its like when kids wear ACDC shirts and don't even know the band and only are wearing it because its trending.

@SanderEvers I knew that. My father vividly described it as a piece of junk whose controls were hard as hell to use and was happy wheb Microsoft PCs came through with their gaming. I think he played Doom on it before even buying the SNES and the game. I only played Doom for the SNES and it wasn't until I was 15 that I played my first PC game o.o

In general its like you don't have to know about that or even the NES to like and play games just like you don't need to know a record player to appreciate music. Times change and technology advances and that is life.

Growing up on the NES makes it a little hard to see this but it doesnt mean anything bad. I mean my father talks about playing games.on the Commador and I don't really know what that is but it doesn't make me less of a gamer. Our youth don't have to know about the original consoles or even some of the games and some might not even be gamers or even nintendo fans and I don't think its a big deal.

Its like giving kids a rotary phone. They probably don't know what it is or how to use it and some might associate it with a toy. It doesn't really matter.



tsukipon commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

I disagree with this post. Even looking at the older images, putting a character in a bathing suit (just that fact alone) isn't a sexualizing thing to me. Even her Zero Suit doesn't bother me. I am a little bothered by the great rendering detail on her breasts, but that's as far as the offense goes in my opinion. I don't see how a sports top and shorts is sexualization. Real women wear that. Real fighting women wear that.

And I think it was a stretch to say "stilettos". Considering the proportion of the heel to her body, that aren't that high. This woman walks around in bulky armor all the top, I am sure she can manage those heels. And I can't see heels as a form of sexualization. Again, real women wear heels. Most do it for themselves because it makes us feel beautiful, and what's wrong with that? Also, the heavy make-up was definitely a stretch. I examined every one of her images for the game and if she was a human, I'd say she was hardly wearing any make-up.

Yes this is a fighting game, but she can look beautiful while fighting. As a woman, I don't see the problem with her alternate outfit and I personally like it better than the zero suit.

Now if this bikini thing is real, I might get offended, but I would have to see it first.



tsukipon commented on Weirdness: When PR Stunts Go Wrong - Watch Dogs:

Bomb scares are a big thing here and they pulled a stunt like this? Anonymous package, no explanation, no warning to a manager or head of security, are you serious Ubisoft. They are gonna get teal flak for this because a bomb squad was called in.

Green shells for the win. Nothing is more satisfying than aiming them perfectly and getting that racer in front of you, who was probably laughing that you have a green shell and believed you were going to miss.

I green shelled baby peach out of the way to victory right before the finish line in the MarioKart 8 demo.
