We are all alike.Ah video games. The things that have lead to the stereo types of nerds and geeks everywhere. Weither your computer vs console, retro vs newcomer, or just the simple question of Mario vs Sonic you know what? It doesn't matter. Most of you may say: Well yeah it does; when no your wrong. Video games are all made for the same reasons; to entertain people and make them feel certain emotions. For most of you say that not all video games have the ability to make people feel emotions I point you to Matpat's deadlock episode which talks about the last of us and pacman. Even in video gaming wars gamers will fight to defend their favorite game when they're really fighting over nothing. Why do I say that? Because we all like the same games.
Now you may look at that and think that isn't true but just look at the facts. Most gamers stick to one type of genre of game maybe 2-3 if they really want different things. But here's the thing; we do like games in franchises/genre's that we normally don't play. We like it because it's new and that spreads our love of video games even more. It shows us how diverce we as humans have become. There really are no better video games. While people argue over Sonic being a bigger icon than Mario that's not true either.
