Gamers and society

Some people call me a lazy bastard, other call me an addict, some call me weird and its basically all negative. People do not really understand that it's quite hard to dedicate so much of your time owning noobs. It's not easy trying to be the best in something that is totally underrated in real-life. People don't give Lionel Messi a weird face when hes playing football 24/7, he's just doing what he loves. As do I.

So you might have figured out that I am bit awkward. At least that is your assumption. I don't think it's me. Altough I have some problems hooking up with girls, I just keep trying and trying. Whatever. The problem is that we are looked upon as some sort of social distorted people that cannot interact with other human beings. While it is true that most autistic people navigate towards gaming/internet, thus confirming our stereotype, there are also alot of other normal people that just enjoy gaming.

I just needed to get this off my chest, and if anyone reads it, fine. If noone does, fine.

  1. The perceptions of others is almost never the reality.

    Socialization governs it.

    You're not doing anything wrong.
    In fact, most people can't even compare.
    Most people can't say they know what they like and know what they want.

    Keep your chin up, man.
    Before you know it, it won't even matter.
    Things change fast.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with gaming.
    Not an hours worth, or a weeks worth.

    Do what makes you happy, and pay no mind to negative perceptions.

    Keep postin too. Stuff like this is good.

  13. Don't sweat the haters. Once you find something you enjoy in your life, go for it 100% and never look back.

  16. Gamers are looked down on. But it's just a way to releive stress and a way that WE have fun. If they don't understand it then they never will. Followed.

  17. Don't stop gaming, just start socializing more. You'll find that you can have a balance of both, but I have to say that if you really want to have a good relationship you might have to put down the mouse/controller for a while to build on it and have it work.
    Good luck man.

  19. I hate when people start to say that you don't have a life just because you play video games.

  20. As a bit of a gamer i understand your side and as a social person i understand the other side. While i don't condone any sort of 'bullying' against gamers i think some need to have other goals and forms of enjoyment in their life. Sure Messi plays a lot of football but i'm sure he has other hobbies and interests he also maintains.
