So I tend to talk about real life issues and make stupid stories in my blogs. Only once have a actually used a blog to talk about a real occasion and that wasn't even real, it happened in Splatoon! So this time, I'm going to talk about something that INFURIATES ME and this story is completely true.
So yesterday (at the time of me typing this), I went to get a haircut. The line was extremely long, so I decided to kill some time while waiting by getting out my Switch and playing some Puyo Puyo Tetris.
As I was playing, a kid walked up to me and said, "So you're a gamer too?"
I was shocked by how unexpected it was, but I replied, "Uh, yeah? I mean, I've been playing video games for a long time."
"What are you playing now? Is that like a 2D Minecraft?" he asked as he glanced at my Switch.
"Uh, no. It's this action-puzzle game called Puyo Puyo Tetris. It's a crossover between Puyo Puyo, which I've doubt you've heard of, and Tetris. I'm sure you know what Tetris is, right?"
"Never heard of either. Sounds boring though. Puzzles games suck!"
That was the moment where I got extremely ticked off. How the f*** could this kid call himself a "Gamer" when he hasn't even heard of Tetris. Then he has the AUDACITY to say that the game sucks when it's a puzzle game. He's doing so many things that upset me. He's judging a game hasn't heard of (even though anyone who calls themself a Gamer should've as least heard MENTIONED) by associating it with other puzzle games. Unfortunately, I did let my anger take control of me.
"How could you possibly call yourself a gamer when you haven't even heard of Tetris?" I asked.
"Liking old, obscure games is not cool, dude! They're outdated and have bad graphics and are BORING!" he retorted.
I was infuriated. Enraged. I will filled with rage.
"There is so much wrong with what your saying, kid. First of all, retro games are what got video games to be as awesome as they are today. Second, graphics don't make a game much better. If you're playing video games for the graphics, you may as well stare at a painting or go watch a 4k video on youtube. Third, the older games are not boring. I doubt you've even touched a game that was made in the 80's and 90's. Super Mario Bros, Contra, The Legend of Zelda, Pac-Man, Half Life, and Tetris are ANYTHING but boring. They're classics, and if you think that you're logic is great logic to judge a video game, you shouldn't even consider yourself a gamer." I said.
The kid was shocked and backed away.
Hopefully I taught him a lesson. I may have gone a bit too far, but I couldn't help it. And this isn't even the first time this has happend. I hear children mocking Nintendo for how the Nintendo Switch does not have 4k graphics, or that Mario is for babies. It infuriates me and I can only hope that the term, "Gamer" does not refer to these idiotic losers.
Don't take this too seriously, my blogs are usually over the top and meant to be taken with a grain of salt.
