Hierarchy of video game haters

I know some of you guys don't like kotaku, but I found this to be a great read. While he uses some stereotypes, most of them are pretty good. I definitely fall into some, and I see most every one of them across the gaming sites including racketboy.

Haha no it isn't, though it is one of the sections of gamers he mentions. It is long but worth the read. I got some laughs.

Chandler Bing impression:

Could that article be more chock full of references that have nothing to do with the context of the subject matter?

I'm guessing he's thinking of people who dress up as Sonic at conventions and really liked Sonic and the Black Knight.

Most of the Sonic fans I know are kinda bitter people actually, though I stay far, far away from the darker corners of the fandom.
