->In theory, games are made so that, through a series of increasingly difficult mental and/or reflexive challenges, a human being interacting with the games interface can learn how to effectively manipulate it, then use that knowledge to accomplish objectives laid out by the designers and trigger the release of endorphins in the brain. This effect is known as "fun," and it can also be achieved through sexual stimulation or narcotics use, although those methods don't feature nearly as many laser rifles.\\
\\
At some point, a faction of gamers, who actually un-ironically call themselves "hardcore," forgot all of that definition except the word "objectives," and decided to treat video games like second jobs. They work at the game with grim, humorless dedication until they discover the best way to win, which is invariably to exploit a balance issue or design flaw, then they do that. Over and over and over again.\\
\\
Their belief is that, by learning a rote mechanical action and having the endurance to repeat it without soiling themselves, they have become skilled at the game. And they are skilled; just like a robotic arm designed to punch a square out of a sheet of aluminum is skilled at that task. So yay for them!
