Games Radar has a fun little list of the 25 things about non-gamers that irritate and annoy gamers. I’m a gamer, so I recognize and identify with some of the items on this list. I’m sure glad that I’m not the poor sap who has to deal with a social life consisting of people who comprise the entire list. There are some gems on this list, for example:
#15 No, his name isn’t “Zelda.” It’s Link. Samus isn’t
“Metroid” and Pikachu isn’t “Pokemon.” Sometimes videogames – like
books, films and television – are complex enough to contain characters
with names separate from the title. Hard to believe, but true!
This list should strike deep to the hearts of all gamers out there who have to deal with difficult non-gamers (and I’m looking at one particular gamer friend of mine here). My condolences to you all.
