The Pains of Being A Closet Gamer

4 Sep

First things first, what is a closet gamer? Well a closet gamer is one who is an avid gamer but hides this fact from others as to prevent social ostracism.

Sad to say, but I was a closet gamer. Whenever someone would ask me what my interests were, my answers would be either basketball or ninjas. Usually basketball. If I were to even utter one word about gaming, they would instantly look at me in the same manner one would look at rotting mashed potatoes.

Looking back at that, I now see that what I was doing was utter horse manure. Who were they to tell me what was normal behavior? I mean, aren’t we all geeks at heart? I have my addiction to games and you have your addiction to football stars. Are we really so different? Is it right to outcast someone just because their passions aren’t like yours?

So if you are a gamer still stuck in that little closet of yours, come out now. How the hell are you supposed to fit your PS3/Xbox/Wii in that cramped space?
