How Gamers and Influencers Should Internalize Opinions

How Gamers and Influencers Should Internalize Opinions

gamers

As gamers and influencers we all have opinions, don’t we? As far as I can remember, I, We have had opinions on gaming since the beginning.

Let’s flashback to 1987 where I first got my Nintendo, I believed it was the best system ever made. Not too many years hence, I purchased a Sega Genesis and I truly believed that the Genesis was a better platform for entertainment than the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. I believed that my opinion regarding these retro consoles was true but at the end of the day, my convictions were still opinions charged with a zeal of my experiences for these platforms.

In this day and age, we are living with a plethora of technologies where anyone (it seems) can and may become an influencer of sorts. When we analyze Games Media, We see influencers who amassed great tribes where their documented opinionated videography or soliloquy are viewed or internalized as canon for a particular outlook or product that hits the Games Media market. These outlooks may be filled with pride, perhaps a dash of narcissism and you may be labeled a heretic if you challenge or oppose the influencer with the massive tribe.

Some will fall into the trap of addressing what they believe. Others will count it as rubbish to entertain any level of narcissism or pride when it comes to defending opinions. And there’s the camp who will engage for the sake of sport or brand awareness – because their brand lacks awareness.

‘Opinion’ is defined as a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. Back in my Nintendo and Genesis days, I had a view about those consoles (neither right or wrong) and my views wasn’t based on anything factual.

or years of activity or experience but these conversations are nonsensical by the very definition of the word. My knowledge was limited but my zeal and appreciation for what those consoles allowed me to form an opinion about them.

This isn’t to say that we all do this but it happens when a major release takes place in Games Media or moments likened unto it. We may have dismissed a release because of a low score or the buzz that surrounded it but who’s to say that you wouldn’t enjoy it? What makes the meeting of the minds great is the diversity of opinions. We can inquire as to why we’ve taken a certain constitution for a product or service but challenging those views or judgments shows that we may be heading in the wrong way of thinking. As Gamers and Influencers, we must be very careful on the manner in which we address opinions because we may very well be the rudder steering the hearts of consumers for better or worse.
