In short, I truly believe (I should've put this bit sooner because it's the closest I'm going to get to sounding intelligent) that there is a spectrum of anti-intellectualism. On the one end, you've got, well, anti-intellectualism. "Boo! I don't want to have to think about things in my games! I just want to shoot some people and then get told that I'm the best person ever, and all games should be like this!"

The other end of the spectrum is "You pathetic babies, you play games for fun? You intellectually-starved cretins.
