Twitter's new video service—Vine, which lets you create six second looping videos—launched recently and has exploded in popularity. Some gamers seized on it as a chance to express their love of the hobby. Here are just a few of the best posts we found on Vine so far.
Just a heads-up: This page may take a while to load, since it's full of HTML5 videos. Additionally some of the compatibility in embedding is still a bit wonky. If you are having trouble seeing the videos below, try opening the post in a different browser (Chrome seems to be the most finicky) or directly viewing each Vine link. We just couldn't pass up the opportunity to show you these videos.
