Not so much of a submission towards gaming as a whole, mostly just a little rant of dumb things that have been annoying me lately. And sorry if I ramble a bit.

So I play, Xbox. And as most Xbox players know, it is pretty shit now-a-days. Yes, "Game-pass" is a great feature but I'm mostly talking how it is socially dead. Of course you can play games with people and even still make friends.

I'm mostly talking about a certain type of account. They have short gamertags, high-gamerscores (not always) and a fuckton of followers. Now I know how this works, I'm not asking how to "get more followers" on Xbox. My main issue is that there are people on Xbox who spend money and bot to look cooler on Xbox of all things. I once met a guy, he spent $300 for a three-letter gamertag, he used a bunch of Japanese games (I think they were glitched or something) just to boost his account to over 100,000 gamerscore. And lastly he has 6,000 followers by "add-4-adding"

The worst part is that they think they are the Xbox Elite, better than you, and you must worship them, for they have a shorter gamertag and more followers. Praise be the 1337G4M3R!!!

But in the end, if you think being cool on Xbox matters, please go outside and engage in social behavior. No one likes a fat neckbeard. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

I don't really get why anyone would pay for consoles past PS2/NGC. Xbox has been shit since forever. PC gaming isn't any better either.

Personally, all I am doing is classic gaming and romhacks of classic games.

I cannot justify spending any money on games or Xbox game pass scenarios these days. All of that falls under "disposable income" and I have hardly any of that due to socio-political factors outside my control. Hence, my opinion is it is a waste of money and you are getting a negative experience because it is a waste of money.

However, when I used to have disposable income due to socio-political factors again not under my control, and I did game, and did get on networks like Xbox, there was always a division between people who gamed for the love of gaming versus people who gamed to try to impress people or else somehow made money off of gaming. Most modern gaming has gotten entirely away from gaming for the love/fun of gaming and gotten into franchising and "being the best" and a bunch of other shit that really was never exactly the core of gaming other than maybe getting the "high score" or something.

So, the joy is all "Drained out of it" and that's partly due to money, and so I'd say probably that is why you are feeling pissed off about the experience.
