I have a different philosophy about this sort of things: Never let a label become a source of pride. As soon as you call yourself "proud to be a ___", that creates an "us", and makes it easier to see those who do not identify with that label as "them", and when that kind of pride is awakened, either by being appealed to or challenged, it can lead you to doing awful things, as the last month has shown. This goes for gamers, cinemaphiles, athletes, scholars, whatever. Take joy in your belonging or hobbies, but don't let them define you to this point, only monsters lurk that way.
Personally, I keep those things in check by applying self-deprecating labels to myself, keeps my ego down when I realize that this hobby is not something significant in the end.
