When I was growing up, I was a pretty avid gamer. I've lost the passion for playing and have focused my interests elsewhere, but that doesn't mean I can't relate to gamers who are looked down upon for their hobby.
It's true that playing video games has become more "mainstream." There's a reason spots like Barcade are teeming with business, and epic-looking trailers for big budget games are everywhere.
But there are still some people who look down on gamers, like this guy's girlfriend who just couldn't stand the fact that he was going online to game with his "nerd" friends.
