Point is: specs aren't everything, even though they are a thing. Too bad some people who are into gaming can't figure it out, whether it be with a PS4, an XBox One...or something with the hardware specs of a Colecovision.
Here I am playing my favorite games from Half-Life to Kerbal Space Program on a Core2 Quad and a GT710 GPU, but every time I mention how well it works there's inevitably some jerk who has to come along and be an armchair expert, telling me I must have it so terrible or set to like 1/8th resolution because I'm not running it on the bleeding-edge Ryzen and GTX2080.
Had it happened on Reddit, they'd also expect you to have an SSD drive to the point that they assume everyone who has a PC has an SSD drive.
It amazes me how people can take a new way of conveying information that
hip and awesome and wonderful 25 years ago and turn it into the living embodiment of human vitriol.
Unfortunately that's what happens when communities turn into echochambers.
Normalization ruins everything.
Normalization has led to people being blunt and apathetic when people become absolute dickheads. It's happening so often that there are things that have become the new normal, and it's to the point where people add to the problem and proceed to jump in, chime in and dogpile, not realizing that they've become part of it.
Applies to gaming, but also applies to other things, too.
