What Would It Be Like If All Gamers Spoke The Truth Online?
The video you have the chance to see here is on one in the popular comedy series on Cracked.com. If you never heard of it before, or better put, if you have been living under a rock for the past ten years, Cracked is a humor website with over 300 million monthly page views. The website was founded in 2005, by Jack O’Brien and is currently owned by E. W. Scripps. It is descended from Cracked magazine, which dates back to 1958.
The series gained its popularity by standing from the crowd using to the point intellectual humorist observation on modern society dilemmas and phenomena: dissecting to the detail pop culture for comedy. The themes selected, usually dissect profoundly ambiguous standpoints about pop culture and life in general, ranging from which fictional apocalypse is the most fun to what would be like if all gamers spoke the truth online?
In the video you are about to see, Cracked authors explore the idea of a much different online gaming culture, stripped of all pretenses, over exaggerated masculinity and racial and gender power dynamics. Bold move, to say the least. Cracked.com now comes out with a parody of all that jazz, showing us a motley crew of gamers, engaged in an online multiplayer game and spilling out truths about their current emotional conditions, romantic preferences, or just a simple fact of hiding their true gender.
We don’t want to spoil it for you by saying more. Pour yourselves a cup of coffee and enjoy the video!
