A big part of the hate also comes from the fact that someone will always think that what you like is dumb, and wants to shout that fact to everyone in the world. Prime examples: anything that makes teenage girls go crazy (there's a lot of teenage misfit males in the gamer demographic, and they are loud), or anything generally popular, particularly if mum and dad like it (Facebook or pick up and play games might fit this category)

Exclusivity is cool - unless I'm not in it, in which case it sucks, and everyone in that group sucks. Exclusivity also becomes less cool as more people join the clique - remember when Facebook was a cool American university network, and not a potential $100B IPO float during an economically weak point in history? Now 'not being on Facebook' is arguably cool, especially if you can pair that to being a member of a ten person social network which constantly bashes it.

It certainly doesn't help when those small groups fortify each other's thoughts, sometimes to the detriment of social behaviour (I seem to remember someone thinking it was cool to steal the source code of a game at a convention, talking in memes, and then trying to bring down his friends when he realised it was a terrible idea.

So this is designed to lure out all the Queenslanders and New South Welshman amongst the users? It works. For the record, Queensland in extra time thanks to a Thurston penalty goal.

1. Metal Gear Solid 4 2. Final Fantasy XII 3. Pro Evolution Soccer/Football 6 4 and 5. Two other games that haven't been released yet. What - you think I'd take games that have already been released and played? That's silly. Probably make it GTA4 and Guild Wars or an expansion thereof. Of course, if I have to go with games out NOW - probably take all the prequels.
