I don't game

I don't game.

I've been around for all of it. The entire phenomenon. From Pong to whatever it is that's happening right now. I had an Atari 2600 Gaming Console when they were brand spanking new. I had an Atari 800 computer when they were brand spanking new. I traded Pole Position and Frogger and DigDug and Avenger with friends on floppy disks that were actually floppy. I did all of that. All of it. And yet, I don't game. After the crash of '83 (I was only 13) I just couldn't be bothered. Yet, it seems I display some characteristic to other gamers that says I game because gamers often start chatting at me in Gamenese and I have to stop them with a polite "Sorry, man. I don't game" which evinces the same look as the just got friendzoned look. I actually feel bad when it happens. The look of disappointment is real and sometimes the guy keeps at it like no, you are not gamezoning me. We were totally talking and you gave all the signs that you wanted to game and now you say you don't and I don't accept it. I'm a cool guy, I think you're a cool guy, we should totally game. You cannot stand there in your Thundercats tee shirt and tell me you don't game. Why won't you game with me? What's wrong with me?

Seriously, it's happened.

I don't game and I don't know why.
