I was in Jay's thread lately about the ten most annoying types of People, and there was one item in particular that struck me.
As a gamer my whole life, I've enjoyed games of all types, mostly on Nintendo platforms and on Personal Computers. Growing up, I also owned a Game Gear alongside my Game Boy, and owned an atari 2600 and later owned a Jaguar.
Bein a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series back in the day, I had to buy a Playstation to play games like FFIX and enjoy games like Metal Gear Solid.
After being part of this community for almost 3 years, I've learned to find ways to show my friends what are the things I actually like. I've been treated like a Sony troll, like a Nintendo troll, like a gaming troll, and so I've found ways to show my friends on here what are those things that I like. It's funny that I've had to do that, but I did. I learned how to put the games I'm actually playing so people can see that I like all kinds of games, I learned to make friends with fans of all platforms to get a better idea of their views on thingsand see if there's common interest. I learned to show off my purchases and achievements and even perform music for my friends on here :)
Yet with all that, the people who put you into boxes and label you will never realize how harmful their attitude is.
I was wondering, did you ever feel like that too?
