I’ve been playing video games since I was 4 years old when laying in a hospital bed my grandmother bought me one the first GameBoy handheld systems. Since then I have only gotten more skilled and able to predict and strategist better. That being said I have watched a great many trends in the video game world; VR, crazy peripherals and the whole switch over from memory cards to hard drives. Not the mention the change over from wired to wireless controllers. That is why this DLC semi-scam has to go!
The life span of a video game is not infinite as many might think. Super Mario Bros. may still be around but the popularity of the game is only left to speed players. No average player would see Titanfall 2 and Super Mario Bros. and chose the Italian plumbers…

What is flow? Flow is a state of mind where you are completely attentive, alert and aware of everything that goes on. More than that you don’t get hung up on anything. Push push Push.

We see it happen and we experience it but it seems no one points out the prejudice of it all. Women in our Nerd-world Culture are treated like demi-gods. Really, think about it, your playing a video game and person with a handle pops on that skews toward a feminine sounding name – or at least you think it is – what happens? Everyone focuses on her or she gets some form of attention more than most. Secure-the-deck-plates! if she actually has a mic and talks! Another example; think about your gaming community online be it tabletop RPG’s, video games, painting, collecting, card games. On those forums… pay attention, women get more responses and get far more attention. It’s one thing I have noticed being apart of the Nerd-world Culture.
It’s a long standing joke among my gamer friends that if you have more than one “x” in your name everything you do doesn’t count. You read that correctly. Meaning if we are playing online together and you get top spot and I get second spot, I actually get top spot. It has even formed into a form of frustration management because if you kill me online we just say, “Oh it doesn’t matter anyway,” “Why is that?” “He has x’s in his name.”
