I've been called hipster on here a few times because I like stuff like Illbleed and Killer7, but don't like Bioshock and Half Life. So I guess just liking whatever isn't popular, as per usual with hipster ****

Shin Megami Tensei. You have to hate that it's extremely popular now for Persona and only like the pure, not very well known SMT. Even better if you can like the panned, stale first Persona game more than the acclaimed 3&4.

Dubstep being a new trend explains much about modern gaming.

I don't get what's with the obsession about Online Play, gamers are anti-social by nature

except for the simple truth that being hipster is a popular trend these days. hipsters also love things that are popular! the thing about hipsters though is that they dress like s***.

Here's my usual definition of a hipster, as done in movie-form:

Basically, if something's really popular, and they hate it for no real reason despite it being something they'd normally like were it not popular, then they're a hipster. That'd pretty much cover that particular definition from a ton of odd extraneous examples certain people who've been through more usernames than Power Rangers have been through teams, robots, or iterations.

Somebody who's too much of a snob to play a AAA title. They only play niche games that have a cult following, probably with a poor rating because they're cooler and know better. Also, arcade games like Braid and Limbo made by cutting edge developers on a low budget. Also games that show artistic freedom snubbed by major publishers who don't know any better, never mind that they might have refused you because you're really not that good.
