Top 10 Worst Video Game Stereotypes

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 All video games rot your brain
2 Nintendo games are automatically worthless money-leeching garbage just because they're marketed to a younger audience than Sony's and Microsoft's and are made to look less realistic
3 Flashier graphics, stronger sales, nostalgic/corporate preferences, and in many cases higher ESRB age ratings automatically make better games
4 Awful fanbases only attach themselves to equally awful things
5 Real men play only the most violent, edgy and dudebro games and listen exclusively to heavy metal and hard rock
6 Every Sonic fan (and FNAF fan, and Undertale fan) is Chris Chan
7 Indie games aren't real games

Is there such a thing as "game-ist" now? - xandermartin98

8 Overrated equals bad

Anyone who says this gets a kick off the boot from me. - Swellow

9 Console gamers are peasants

I am gamer not peasant

10 Nintendo and Sony games, especially concerning platformers, are the only good ones

The Contenders

11 Retro games are boring

Retro are the best video games! Quest For Glory, enough said - darthvadern

12 Nintendo is the most evil and corrupt video game company ever

Can you spell the word "steal" (AS A VERB) without EA? - TheYoshiPyro64

13 Games looking realistic automatically makes them realistic

Resident Evil 4 would like to have a word with you - xandermartin98

14 Nintendo is a flawless saint that can do no wrong when it comes to games

Old mario party is so flawed it's not even funny! And Super Mario Odyssey suffers from replay-value. On top of that, there's the N64 which is overrated at best - darthvadern

15 All gamers are male
16 All girls suck at games
17 Call Of Duty is the worst game to ever exist on the face of the Earth

Umm... Dalmatians 3 bleeding exists! - TheYoshiPyro64

UmJammer Lammy, Elite Beat Agents, Rhythm Heaven, Space Channel 5, Vib-Ribbon and Gitaroo Man would REALLY like to have a word with you - xandermartin98

19 Nintendo makes bad graphics
20 No Platformers or Anthropomorphic Animals Allowed
21 Classic Nintendo is only liked because of nostalgia

Just look at how much love Mario kart 64 and Super Mario 64 gets! Mario Kart 64 in particular is not a masterpiece! At least SM64 Is a masterpiece - darthvadern

26 Nintendo itself literally stopped making good games once the Wii era hit

39 Halo is a ripoff of Metroid
