There’s a running joke that says you can think up any obscure topic and attach “dot Tumblr dot com” to the end, and you’ll find an already existing Internet community. While not every obscure notion has its own Tumblr, there definitely are some deep dives in the topic pool. Today’s Fandom Tumblr of the Week is just such a blog, laser focused on one particular geeky sub-subtopic.
Fandom(s): Video games
Theme or gimmick: Most of the entries are images and gifs of stairs in video games.
When it started: March 18, 2013
Tumblr intro: “Your daily dose of digital stairs and/or gifs.”
Why it’s great: One of the great things about geekdom and the fans that inhabit it is the great variety of niche interests and the immense level of effort and detail that goes into each of them. It surely takes a lot of effort to curate a collection of video game stairs like the one we’re featuring this week, and there must be some level of fannish passion behind that effort. For that, we tip our collective hats to Video Game Stairs and all the micro niche geeky blogs like it.
