The Boomer’s and Video Games: A Critique and Rant

25 Feb

-For the Uncensored!

Imagine it’s the 80’s, and you are a highly “sophisticated” intellectual and you find that your son likes this thing called Nintendo. He gets the fact that you move Mario right to left but your son sees something else. It’s world that he can inhabit just as much as any science fiction or fantasy book the boomer liked in his day. It’s not that different from make believe. Boomers had board games and table tops that allowed them to think outside the box. But for those boomers who did understand video games, they knew the fire that came after. Some Gen-Exers and boomers got video games. It’s the boomer that sits in his ivory tower in academia that looks down on us. The people who work shit jobs for bum paychecks, getting fired at the end of every season.  

            Those boomers exist, and some are gen-exers who bemoan the death of literature. (I have family like this, and it makes me cringe). I love books immensely, but at some point, you got to have other hobbies and interest. Sometimes, you can play an instrument. You can help the poor at your local food bank…help lecture the poor as you walk into the bank with your money that you earned.

            But sometimes it’s great to play a video game. That’s what the best movies used to mean. It used to mean pulling myself into a dangerous world where it doesn’t exist in real life. Back when we had first world problems to worry about. Like how micro aggressions were so important, and “safe spaces.” 

            But seriously, the boomers who hate video games are the same stodgy assholes who don’t read comics, or genre fiction, and pretend that literature is still the best. Pass me the cyanide if I have to read Wuthering Heights, no thanks, Ms. Bronte. I write my own depressing novels, I don’t need your bullshit attached to my life. Jk, Emily Bronte, you can always suck my penis. Take that you old granny boomer bitch! That’s for ruining of a lot of high school and College English lit classes. So, go make me a sandwich.

            Okay, other than that dig against a dead woman who ruined college lit classes, there are the insane boomers that hate video games. Why? I think those boomers who hate video games are worse than Lars Ulrich who hates music and the people who listen to Metallica. Talk about boomer bitches!

            But video games provided an escape and the years spent following that escape, even it was hiding away in art, or video games, the Boomers looked at us with hatred as they saw video games as a threat.

            But they hate video games, like it’s beneath them. The boomers aren’t bad people but they are people who never pursued there dreams. And work is not a dream. Being in the medical field, sucks! We can all say that. Unless you’re dancing and putting it online. So, that doesn’t count.  But boomers never had it hard. They had good jobs, while most of the working class was getting screwed for the past six decades, the Bill Gates and the Steve Jobs (who weirdly enough understood video games, as Gates funded XBOX and Jobs understood the mechanics of computers) were blind enough to let all of society go to shit. And for that, fuck you very much semi in touch tech literate boomers/psycopaths who created viruses to destroy mankind.

            But in some cases, are we merely just one more step away from the brink? With video games being attacked for “misogyny” it makes for little pleasure to be lectured by head of Naughty Dogg, Neil Druckman about right and wrong. While I do love the Last of Us 2, he’s a big fucking boomer. Calling people boomers in print is very 18th Century of me. I think I’m gonna light a candle and walk through my house in the dark. Try it. It’s pretty fucking dope.

            To pinch this turd short, not all boomers are bad, but they don’t have to be old to be a boomers either. I love books, and reading, so maybe that makes me a boomer, but it’s funny how actual boomers escaped with hating there children while they had the world in there hand, living off doing the bare minimum, and then giving up all there freedoms to China, while making fun of there children for wanting to do more than just “work” at a stupid fucking day job where they got to surf the Internet and lecture people about “real work.” And they fucked it all up.

            But, this doesn’t reflect Skyrim granny, because we all love Skyrim Granny. Shirley Curry,  has nearly 950k subscribers on YouTube, as she streams Bethesda’s popular hit fantasy game, for the last five years. So not everyone is a boomer.

            But to the other boomers, thanks. It’s been real. Now go in your nursing home, Biden, before you spill your apple sauce.
