People tend to forget that the gamer's are the ones who are in college and doing work like this anyway. If people had more Faith in Gamer's logic then maybe they would be more willing to help.

Except Cod players they'd just call everyone faggot campers

You say CoD players like once you play CoD you only play CoD. Sure, I dumped a week of my life into Black Ops 2, but I've played 8 times that much Fallout and Skyrim this year, Chrono Trigger is still my favorite game, and I play Animal Crossing religiously. You're all stereotyping way too broadly. Camping faggots.

But would you identify yourself as a CoD guy? As in, is that the game that really hits the mark for what video gaming is to you? I doubt it. It's not just CoD either, it is all of the gamers who put up with the ******** that the companies try to shove down their throats. People say CoD because whilst CoD is not the best example of this (the best example is the majority of the sports-game genre) it is one of the best as well as one of the most wide-spread and popular.

As an opposite to 'Gamer' which is far too wide-spread a generalisation to be useful in pinpointing what kind of person someone is, 'CoD player' is far too specific for the group that it generally is used to represent. However, the meaning of both is still conveyed in a general sense. They may often be either too specific/unspecific for them to accurately depict exactly the intended meaning but at the same time they are far more efficient than any other wording at conveying the intended general meaning quickly and with minimal mess.

Until words are invented to mean 'people who play high-quality games like Skyrim, GTA and Portal and take an active part in the industry as both a savvy consumer and a concerned fan' and 'mindless drone that eats up the same old **** for premium prices and perpetuates some of the worst practices in gaming in general whilst ignoring or even degrading high-quality products that shun the worst aspects of the industry' people will have to settle for what they can and often it just goes down to 'Gamer' or 'CoD Fanboy/Player/something or other'.

Scapegoat or not, it is the best we've got.

I just think there's too much overlap. All of the people I meet through CoD also play these other games. It just happens to be that a lot of people like multilayer first person shooters. But whatever, I see your point. I really can't complain about being stereotyped on the internet either.

Well and don't forget that researchers get paid for their work, so of course they'd delay it as long as possible to get paid.

Actually, they get paid much more for solving problems than they do for not solving them and the nature of the fight against things like HIV and AIDS and Cancer is such that even if one superbug is solved, the next has already started to rise so researchers are needed on the forefront.

They'd not be unemployed if they fixed HIV, they'd be rich AND put onto a new, fresh topic.

We're still ahead of non-gamers on average though, as gaming has been proven to improve problem solving abilities.

Exactly. I'm a gamer, and I'm in the third year of my genetics degree.
