Satirical PSA Laments the Plight of the Modern PC Gamer

| 27 Jun 2011 23:15

Remember kids - only you can prevent hackers, griefers, and noobs.

YouTube user Freddie Wong has become something of a sensation for his series of rather brief videos that are exceptionally well-produced and pretty damn funny. His latest, the "Crying PC Gamer," tackles the modern state of PC gaming.

To be fair, there's a lot one could mock about modern PC gaming: The rise of social gaming like FarmVille (which counts!), the heavy tech requirements for the highest-end games, or the always-entertaining topic of draconian DRM, just to name a few. But in this video, Wong takes aim at PC gamers - or, to be more specific, at a certain breed of PC gamer.

I'm sure you know the type. This video laments the hacker who aimbots, the griefer who uses a wallhack, or the jackass who teabags and leaves a shock-site spray on the walls - the sorts that PC gaming would be better off without if they all left to go to Xbox Live.

It's a funny little video and worth a watch, even if it isn't as good as "Jedi A-Holes Strike Back."
