    Do they still call them video games? I tried Pong in 1976. Yawn. I tried Pac Man in 1981. WONKA WONKA WONKA – KLUNK! Like Sargeant Schultz I know nothing about avatars. Like Butterfly McQueen I don’t know nuthin’ ‘bout birthin’ no Playstations. I am an electronic entertainment Luddite. Mea culpa. Robert Culpa.

    No, now it’s “gaming”, and even the other gamers pants you in the locker room for a nerd if you play solo games instead of Fortnite or Call of Duty.
    (And yes, let’s consider the Vanellope Von Schweetz joke to have been made, and move on…)

    Gaming today is weird. What’s socially acceptable/cool is either people watching other people play video games on Twitch/Youtube (usually single player games) or playing multi-player only games.

    Actually playing games yourself (not against other people) is still considered weird and nerdish.

    Doesn’t that kind of entirely depend on who “they” are?
    ;-)

    IMDB entries on video games identify them as, well, as Video Games, so there’s that, anyway.

    Mike Nelson DID do a podcast, with fellow -Trax writer Conor Lastowka “372 Pages We’ll Never Get Back..” about the book, “Ready Player One”, which Mike hated… more than Mike hated the movie “American Beauty” (…and Mike HATED American Beauty). The novel apparently has the snark level of Chris Hardwick x Joel McHale x 3.14159265359 and a “hipster” anti-religious bend. These elements were deleted from the movie, which looked like a ride at Universal studios. My problem with Riffs of movies like these is that they’re often too lengthy to sustain the fun. We never got to the end of “Twilight: Eclipse,” because we couldn’t take it anymore. Imagine if MANOS had been 2 1/2 hrs long?

    For the out of touch old men here: yes they are still called video games, no the term “gamers” is not anything more than a term for people who play video games, no playing games on your own is not looked down upon at all. Some of the best selling games are solo experiences.

    They’re “graphic cinema modules”.

    A little ageism here? As you grow older perhaps your horizons will broaden. Watch out for arthritis in your thumbs.
