We've talked a little bit about video game fandom in class and on the blog. For example, we looked at video game character Halloween costumes, and fan art. There have also been examples of video game fan websites, videos, and even video game food on the blog. Fans of video games have expos and special events. Fans may dress up, and wait in line for premiers. My question is, do you think video game fandom, or video game fans in general act in similar ways within society as fans of television, music and movies? Are video game fans thought of in the same way as other media fans, or are they looked down upon more than fans of television, for example? If so, why are they treated differently? What do you think?
