I think that’s the point.

Being enraged nearly to tears about a video game is one of the silliest fucking things I’ve ever heard. Just go play something else.

And I say that as someone who takes video games far too seriously. Ask Korny how much I still rant about dumb shit in Destiny and Halo and whatever else we’re playing at the time. We have the same bewildered conversation about both of those games at least once a month. So I’m in no real place to talk about wasted energy on video games. It’s a passion, and I’ll never begrudge anyone that.

I don’t know any of the people you’re talking about, but if they’re playing games professionally (either competitively for money or for youtube/twitch views), I’m super inclined to take what they say with a grain of salt and assume they’re playing it up at least a little bit, because there is money in it.
