Interesting question. The easiest way is to look for internet humour which is a bit risque. Not game-specific memes, common misconception among the poseurs. You can’t fake internet humour, it takes years to become a nyan-thousand tier shitlord. They aren’t PC.
- Anyone using it for political point-scoring a la “I consider myself to be a gamer” is not.
- Anyone claiming the hipster “I was a gamer before it was cool” unless explicitly asked, is not.
- Anyone trying to turn a hobby into a lifestyle choice with appended status, is not.
It’s all about the game. Not the players.
I don’t play online anymore for example, because other people break my focus and the fucking lag, man. Fucking lag.
Mobile games don’t count.
Except maybe Snake.
Thus concludes our super-special snowflake outing.
