When it comes to video games, there is no shortage of people out there telling you that there is a “right way and a “wrong way” to play them. Especially now that watching people or streaming video games yourself has become a common passtime, faceless individuals in chat enforcing their will upon the streamer because they’re not playing “correctly” has become commonplace.
Here we have yet another topic brought about by me spending far more time than is healthy looking at social media. Having little better to do right now than just read Twitter endlessly, I am reminded that people seem to love arguing with one another. To the point where oftentimes they don’t even believe half of the stuff they’re saying.
You could call them trolls, they might believe themselves to be playing devil’s advocate. Honestly, I think some people’s brains have broken to the point where they just want to disagree with people for no real reason. I know I’ve been guilty of it, when I’m in a bad mood and I just want to find fault in everything I read.
I’ve found myself getting more and more frustrated using social media of late. Twitter, Instagram and I’ve all but stopped using Facebook completely. The services all seem to do more harm than good when it comes to their original intended purpose these days.
Outside of contacting people you actually know in real life. The platforms seem to be little more than people making hot (irony much) takes, daring anyone to question them, and when they do it turns into a venomous debate over said subject. Which might be the most pointless activity known to mankind.
