We are Gamers, and Our Time has Come



So, to start off...just to let you know....this will not be your run of the mill article.


Ok, now that we've got that out of the way, let's get right to the point.

I am a gamer and I'm proud of it. No-one can tell me otherwise, and to all my fellow gamers......you should feel the same way.

There's certainly enough of us out there to be heard.......And our numbers are growing.


So here's a special message for all non-gamers who are reading this - 

Gone are the days when gaming was attributed to nerdiness and social ineptitude. We now come in all shapes and sizes, all ages and genders, and we walk past you in the streets every day without you even knowing it.

Millions upon millions of us are online every day playing games against people across continents. Millions more are secretly going home to play their games after a hard day at work.

There are over 33 million of us in the UK alone. (Think a bit on how small the UK's population is compared to the rest of the world and you start getting the idea.) 

And no, we're not coming to get you.......we already ARE you. There is no need to fear us, because one of these days you'll be joining us.

We hold massive tournaments that are now referred to as E-sports, and these events are televised across the globe, with massive pay-outs to the winners. 

There is a reason that the gaming industry has surpassed all other forms of entertainment in popularity and profit. It gives us a break from the rest of things in life that are stressful, boring and mundane.

Of course, the interactivity involved means that we're no longer watching a hero in our favourite movie......we're ordering him to do our bidding so that we can get the results WE want, because WE pull the strings.

We are the most passionate people you will ever meet, and I have personally been responsible for the sale of many consoles to friends and family by sharing that passion. (previous non-gamers included.)

I will continue to promote the best source of entertainment ever made, so to all non-gamers out there reading this..............see you soon.
