Gamers vs Grumblers
Gamer – someone who is gamesome. “I’m game”. A person of action.
Grumbler – someone who is at odds. “I’m disagreeable”. A person of complaints.
As the console wars have become less prominent, people have increasingly found ways to personally introduce and attack demographics in debates. This has lead to increased hostility since now the target is placed solely on the individual’s actual body, character, and biologically related group rather than his favored company in which he consumes goods from. The gamer is above the demographic. Transcendental to worldly affairs. Talk of sub-gamer demographics sets the stage for division and lowering our esteemed relations to one another.

The fatigue of dragging finger movement is gone. This also translates to making non-gaming applications far more efficient and pleasurable to operate in.
