Yep exactly. I play to get that feeling, that inexplicable sensation of euphoria. I agree with your post man, we need to get back to simpler times where fun was all that matter. But you know... nowadays if you don't talk abourt RAM or graphics you are not hardcore enough. And being hardcore is a serious thing.
Whats funny is that if I didn't own a Nintendo console I would be another of those "Dudebro" guys, since my friends are those type of guys. But thankfully I didn't jump on the Bandwagon.
