I must be one of the dumbest gamers on the planet. I live in my own little world and never really think of how other “gamers” view gaming or enjoy gaming or what they think is gaming.
I read an article tonight at my opinion as a gamer in which they question Nintendo’s objective to make more moola off of Let’s Play Video‘s. It was revealed to me that some gamers will actually watch an entire game with out even playing it , like at all. You can read the article here.
I fail to believe that and i sincerely hope that this is not the case. After posting that article about the equality of gaming, i find myself somewhat torn about the acceptance speech that i was giving in that article. If you watch an entire game on You Tube and you have no interest in ever owning that game, are you actually a gamer then? My knee jerk reaction is a deafening no! Does that make me a hypocrite then? Because the person watching the video obviously has some interest in games if he/she has taken the time too look for it online and maybe just can’t afford to purchase said game and wants to get as close as an experience to the game as possible.
*Sigh* now i feel bad because if that is the case, then i can understand why Nintendo would want to restrict those kinds of videos and to cash in on it, this being just one reason if it is in fact true. And i feel bad for the hypothetical gamer that can’t afford to play this game.
I am honestly torn. I need everybody that reads here to vote and leave a comment for me. I am exceptionally curious about this. I have no allegiance yet and that bothers the hell out of me so i need your help. If you voted for option C, please leave a comment to elaborate.
