Video games have been a decidedly “uncool” past time for the most part of their existence. In fact, in almost every teen movie pre-2005, the character who spent their time playing video games was guaranteed to be lacking in: a) friends b) girlfriend or c) anything closely resembling a social life. This slightly insulting and sweeping stereotype was an idea perpetuated by the media and society for decades. In recent times, however, there has been a shift in what it means to be a “gamer” or, more specifically, how being a “gamer” can *shock horror* be considered a cool and even normal thing. Celebrities and their increasing involvement in this industry have had a hand in this.
