I saw a recent AWESOME build thread with a frustrating comment that I’ll get to later…the build was amazing, and the artist behind it had skill and talent and his work was mind-blowing. I love seeing that stuff, and that’s one of the great aspects of this community. It makes me yearn to learn, and to be more patient with my next build.
But I also can tell that as “The PC Master Race”, some people take the term a bit too literally and become rather elitist about it. I saw a comment that said something similar to, “I’m tired of seeing builds from people from off the street” and “everyone’s generic builds”
Hey, *fuck you, guy.* Part of the PC Master Race is that anyone can grab a $100 notebook from Walmart and play awesome, low-fidelity games that don’t require microstransactions or an arm and a leg to start and feel included in its “Ultimate edition.” I have dear friends from all over the world with all kinds of builds ranging from toasty potato to NASA-level engineering. And all of them are welcome to this wonderful, open platform.
Whether it’s a kid who’s just gotten his thirteenth birthday gift and just wants to play Fortnite, or an empty-nester who’s finally got time to focus on himself and build that aircraft simulator rig he’s always wanted: that’s the beauty of the possibility of PC gaming. There are no limits on either extreme. Everyone can enjoy it.
So the next time you see a generic, dusty build that someone just got a component replaced, applaud them for sticking around and growing the community. Don’t lambast someone for having a passion and finding a place for it to be an outlet.
