|People who create threads such as this get on my nerves. First of I just cannot stand people who tell others to get a life on a video gaming message board. Generalizing people's lives because they're excited about a game is just so very ignorant. Just because you're really excited for something does not mean that you don't have a life. In fact life is what you make it. Everyone has a life, as long as you're enjoying what you're doing you're living. Why do people like to generalize others on a forum who are really passionate about games such as GTA V? Is it because they have a pathetic need for feeling higher than everyone else or are they just extremely ignorant. Everyone has a f*cking life, stop saying get a life, stop saying oh you need a girlfriend just because someone is really into something that may seem menial to you. /rant.|
It's a hobby, and people really like their hobbies. This is a really, really important addition to a lot of people's hobby of gaming.
Though like you said, some people want to feel superior, and they're picking the current scapegoat of gaming, which still has the weird connotation of being for children.
All that post is doing is jumping on the willful ignorance bandwagon. Congratulations cggc93, you don't enjoy gaming as much as these other people. Well done. Have cookie, here's your bottle and pacifier.
Deffpony's lock post is good at addressing that as well. But all you do is just report and move on, they're likely looking for attention or a circlejerk.
