You might want to explain these out a bit; as there doesn't appear to be a tense here.
I don't understand what you mean...? I am, and have been for a long time, a member of these subgroups of gaming.
Souls-players has been a community since about 2010, and people often malign the community for its attitudes, but the reality is, most people just don't get it. Originally, when people would say "git gud" it wasn't about being elite, it was actually the advice: don't complain about the game, continue to learn and evolve to get better. Many players found the games to be frustratingly hard, and rather than adapt, started demanding the games be made easier and such on the discussion boards, which becomes tiresome and annoying. Accept that not everything is for you, and move on, rather than complain about things being too hard. This mind-set has changed the way I deal with my everyday life as well, and I've been happier ever since I started doing so.
PC Master Race is a joke. It's more like PC Enthusiasts. I enjoy building out PCs and tweaking my PC devices to get the most out of them (which is why I love my new Steam Deck). I love tweaking and modifying the hardware and software to bend to my will. It's almost the exact opposite of the above, except rather than demand that someone change something for me, I am adapting it to my needs myself. It is a new type of challenge to try and get good performance out of suboptimal equipment, and a joy to get high end equipment to compare it to. You don't get those freedoms most of the time with consoles (though I am about to break open one of my PS4s and play with it).
Emulation community: I love playing my console games. I had a ton of them. But I no longer have a working Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, Super NES, Nintendo Gameboy, Nintendo 64, Sony Playstation, Sony PS2, etc. to game on. So I have gotten emulators to play my favorite games from those eras.
Does that meet your needs for explanation?
