Of course I do not have tell you all about the NiSuTe Gaming Culture and how people enjoy our events, still there is something happening around us. I do not know if you have seen it to but I am starting to see a new trend among gamers. Although I run the NiSuTe Club for a long time now, but lately I see more and more Gamer Clubs popping up. It seems something is changing within the gamers them self. Sure in the first generation gamers came together all too often. Only after the ninety’s gamers went their separate ways.
With the arrival of the Play Station and the “i rather play games for free” generation gamers parted. Many dint want to have to do anything with the “i rather play games for free” generation, and the “i rather play games for free” generation dint even know there was something was there before their generation. But now finally at the third generation of Play Station fanatics things start to change. The “i rather play games for free” Generation started to pay for games and eventually even communicating to others.
Communicating and communications seems to be the way of the future. Online play helps of coarse but mobile gaming especially opened the communications wide open. While I was playing my DS with a friend of mine while we were in the train people first stared at us later they start to look over our shoulders and you know how I am when people do that. Before they knew it they were holding the DS and playing the games. After that we spent time talking mostly about the evolution of games and the new wave of games coming. And before we knew it I was giving them the address of the club to them. With either themselves or their sons and daughters dropping by. And more and more times those gamers seemed to be the old “I rather play games for free” generation now respecting the games and other gamers for what they are. Paying for games and respecting the developers this generation blends with the current and past generations.
The urge to create groups of people with the same passion is only human. But it seems that gamers are scared to be of joining or creating groups. But now we finally see gamers join clubs. But now there is a small problem. Gamers are not used to clubs and there for many do not know how a club is run. Still I look with anticipation to the future of video gaming clubs.
PS if you are not in a club and you would like to know more about it please let us know
