Recently, I got spammed by articles of this “Future Gamer” and after doing some research I found out this wasn’t a joke.
TL;DR: This is basically Boomer Propaganda, trying to discourage gamers from spending time on video games in hopes they spend more money elsewhere.
So, let’s look at “Michael” the “Gamer in 20 years” model by OnlineCasino:
It’s an extremely funny diagram of the “Future Gamer” and it’s hard to take this seriously. I think what makes this so cringe is watching gambling industries try desperately to discourage people from Video Games…
Let’s ask this question, “Why would a website dedicated to Online Casinos be addressing “Gaming Addiction”?”. Because they are losing money!
They are finally realizing they are losing money to Microtransactions from Video Games! Do you think industries care about your health if you dropping bank into them?
I’m not saying that everything about this model is unreal, but open your eyes and look at who is talking about this issue! Gambling addiction has been a thing since the origin of Gambling, obviously. Casinos never cared about people with this addiction because it made them money!
I have to say, the terms “Nintendo Arthritis” and “Playstation Thumb” are hilarious! It’s funny to see them try to so hard to discourage gamers, even down to this ridiculous model of people who already exist!
