Gamer Stereotypes

What is with that dumb stereotype that we are all 500 pound social retards with no lives? It's not a big deal offline where people can obviously see that you don't fit that bill, but online people always assume you're a loser - sometimes even on Gaming sites, which just makes me raise a brow at the person posting that. Anyway, where did the stereotype originate? Why is it so prevalent?

It's sad because I know some people at school who you just described. Down to the T.

Let's not forget the stereotype that we're all serial killers waiting for our moments to snap and kill a school bus full of children.

Seriously, that sterotype right there? That one needs to go away. You can call me a fat, antisocial freak who does nothing play video games with a joystick and play with my joystick to video game characters all day, but say I have the same train of thought as a murderer just because I play video games and I will be pissed.

Nobody seems to use that stereotype around here. Pretty much everyone plays video games, so we can see for a fact that we aren't fat, and clearly all have lives because everybody goes out everyday.

You've got to admit, it's one of the more accurate stereotypes that exist today.

There are some guys at my school who unfortunately fit the exact stereotype GameCube described. They hang out in the school rec room playing video games and most of them are below zero in terms of physical attractiveness and they have absolutely zero social skills and zero personality. So unfortunately the stereotype is more accurate than we like to think.
