Where have you been living?In any other Hobby there is a kinda of a rule that you want to know every aspect of that hobby, I'll make an example.
If someone love running with cars or love cars in general 9 times out of 10 they know how the engine works, wich breaks are better and most of the time they know every single aspect of the "racing" anvironment. Same could be said for example for Chees players, a real hobbist in chees know the name of the champions, knows the movsets and all the stuff that ... I don't know cause I don't play it...
This "rule" can be applied almost to everything, but not on videogames.
In our Hobby most of the people is just ok with playing it, they don't care for what mouse you use, the response time, how graphics technology works, they just play.
I mean there are ppl that play games at the easy level!?!?!? When I'll have to do it I'll just stop playing
And this pisses me off
My PC is a state of the art machine, I love my hobby, I love the games, I love the tech, I love the hardware. I saved money to buy the best mouse around, the best keyboard, the best Videocard and everything else, I keep it clean and don't install any bloataware of any type.
Gaming is my hobby and I want to know everything about it, it is not even an expensive one compared to other stuff (cars or coins for example).
Why do you think is so hard to find someone so "into" in this hobby?
I used to race cars when I was younger. You would not believe how many people were "into racing" and didn't know how to change a spark plug. These were typically the people that drove Z28s and Tans Ams. LOL. I used to love those guys and my Charger feasted on their lunch money. Sure, there were plenty of us that were really into cars but not everyone that raced was and it definitely wasn't 9 out of 10.
My point is, there are those that are into things and they dive deeper into a hobby and there are those that do not want to get into the nuts and bolts of it and just enjoy the ride. I do not feel like I should have to learn to code to play a game. What you are describing is not a hobbyist. What you are describing is an elitist.
