One thing you’ll notice if you regularly play computer games online is that a lot of gamers seem to have really big egos. This is usually the case regardless of the game you play. So why is this?
Well, there are a few reasons. I think it mainly has to do with the fact that the people who play computer games online are generally teenagers and people in their early twenties.
These people obviously have a lot of friends both online and in the real world. Therefore, they care a lot about their reputation, so they are desperate to do well when playing computer games. In an ideal world, they want to be the top players and the envy of all their peers.
So they will end up playing these games for hours on end trying to become the best they can be. They can try visiting the various forums and buying strategy guides to get some useful tips and strategies. If they do get any kind of success, they’ll blow it up and brag about it online.
However, it should be noted that these people may not have as big an ego as it seems at first glance. In fact, they may just be young children who are only 10 or 11 years old, for example. It’s just that when you’re online you can hide behind your keyboard and basically say whatever you want, knowing there won’t be any consequences. You can brag about yourself as much as you want, especially if no one knows who you are in real life.
You will often see people on gaming forums telling everyone about their achievements in various games. They often glorify themselves and make fun of other people. However, in real life, they are probably the best people you could ever hope to meet, as their offline personality is completely different from their online personality.
So the point is that you shouldn’t necessarily judge people based on how they are online. To some extent this is just a facade and if you met them in real life they would probably be very different.
It seems that there are a lot of egos in the world of online gaming. However, it’s usually just the youngsters who want to beat their friends and beat other players online, hoping to become one of the best players. As they get older, they will probably find that their ego and attitude start to wane, and they just enjoy playing the game.
