Don't judge others for what they play or play on. Gaming is a way of life so embrace it.

"Gaming is in your soul"

"gaming is inside of you,it's deep in our souls"

"if you take gaming away from me a part of my soul will just die,a part of my world will explode."

What a load of cringe inducing bilge.

I think quit the opposite. We need more hatred and possibly physical violance between us.

So true Jim... Get this, the idea that I can sit across a table from someone and discuss our different preferences about this hobby from front to back has always made it better to me...

The crazies in the hobby though... yeah they need to spend some time in the sun.

Especially casual gamers who play COD and angry birds. We must fight them and hate them.

Anyone who uses the phrase "true gamer" will not be given the time of day by me.

Oh god. Now I've forcibly ingested more rubbish by this accurately predicted insufferable irk of a person through osmosis. I need to get out of here.

The Xbone is an atrocity to real gamers. None of these companies are owed our money. They need to work for it. If people want to be cheeleaders for something I think is wrong and counterproductive as a long time gamer, then I will voice my disdain for it.

All this wishy washy limp-wristed metrosexual "love all platforms" bullshit is just a thinly veiled from of elitism for people who have more money than sense. They are the cheering throng at a Hitler rally. They are the people that stood quiet while the US invaded Iraq. They are the people that don't really care because they are inside a cozy bubble, free to pass judgement without really being affected.

THIS is not the way of a real gamer. A real gamer actually cares about gaming and how things will be in the future. Giving a free pass to every machine is bull shit. I bet the guy who wrote this article hadn't even touched an Ouya or Gaikai let alone considered buying one. Just another mouthpiece for "the big three" that wants to pretend to have the answers. Screw him.

Roger that. There's a nice medium between the "let's all get along" hippy balderdash in the OP and being a corporation's dong polisher.

I agree wholeheartedly, but it's not something no one here has not said before. That's just how some gamers are.

I always looked at SW like a good place to have a civilized conversation between people that had various views. But much of it has become who can be the larger troll.

Me thinks your butthurt is taking SW way way wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too serious. Truth and justice in a forum about video games called "System Wars". You're all kinds of fucked up in the head LMFAO

After a bad day we come back home tired and frustrated,and what makes you relax? Games,or sometimes TV*ahem*.

If that is a stipulation of a true gamer then I am not one -- I would rather spend time with certain individuals over a game or TV show, they're more distractions than anything.

This blog did not make, or even try, to make me any smarter or change my perspective. It's a history lesson about himself, nobody knows more about anything gaming related. A true blog. (Wasted my time)
