What used to be considered cringy but is now considered cool?

I mean, if somebody only talks games then there's a problem. Don't get me wrong, if it's your passion then by all means... but if you're 23, can't read, and you're living off your parents' money playing shooting games on the internet, then you're probably an actual, honest to God loser.

My roommate was this kind of person. Jobless. Couldn't read. Everything was stupid to him -- especially Donald Trump's tweets (which he literally could not even read). All he did all day was play f2p shooty games and yell at people for being stupid. If he was some sort of game-creating savant I would have given him a pass, but he literally only played shooty games all day long, yelling at people. Loser.
