Memes are one of the modern ways to express our emotions of something, or just make us laugh. But when it comes to creating memes from movies or video games, it’s a risky move to do. The reason for that memes can come from spoilers in entertainment that certain people have yet to watch or play. I won’t be spoiling anything, so don’t worry.
With movies, I believe it’s alright to create memes from any movie from 5 years and beyond since people saw the movie that most of them know about. But if it was released a few days, weeks, or several months, people would’ve yet to watch it and wanna watch the movie when they got the time; Same goes with video games; If they were games that have little story or if just like the annual sports games, then it’s okay to make fun of it. However, many video game nowadays have more story and surprise gameplay in their modern games, which creates a problem to a certain audience that they should avoid the internet so that the player/viewer won’t discover anything related to a game/movie they want to play/watch.
Avengers: Infinity War is one of 2018’s most highly anticipated movies, as well as one of its best Marvel movies. And not long after the movie premiered, the meme community started posting memes about Infinity War, and had pictures from people who filmed the movie in their memes. That has to be utter hell to those who view memes and is going to watch the movie. Another example would be a game called Persona 5; It’s a turn-based RPG game that has a really good story. The game was very popular, so popular that it not only was a really good experience to play, it also got a nomination for Game of the Year in the 2017 Game Awards. And just like Infinity War, it boasted the creation of more memes (many of them with spoilers).
It’s hard to explain more about spoiler memes because…SPOILERS!!!But I will say that there are memes that relate to a movie/game, but they have no context of spoilers. But even with that, it wouldn’t help much with spoiling something on the internet. So the next time you wanna watch the next upcoming movie, or play the new video game (that is story based), just avoid the sites that contain memes; Because you’ll expect a whole slew of spoiled posts.
