Have you ever been harassed for being a gamer? Has a cop ever pulled you over and made snarky comments about your love for gaming? Have you ever been followed through a department store because you’re wearing a Pac-Man t-shirt? I can’t say that any of these has happened to me simply because I am a gamer. In fact, I don’t remember any point in my life where I was treated maliciously because of my gaming habit. Gaming is a huge part of the person I am, but would it be fair for me to consider gaming as a social class with the abundance of other slings and arrows that we are trying to cope with in today’s society?
On today’s episode of Nerdist: Play, I give my answer to that recently often posed question, and whether or not I believe gamers are being attacked (mainly by the media). But before we get into that, we’ll be checking out one of the most adorable takes on Sunder from the MechWarrior series that you’ll ever see.
