1. when an aspect of a game, show, film, or other media is clearly meant to be fulfillment of a nerd fantasy. Compare to blacksploitation, as this often involves nerds doing ridiculously awesome things, i.e., Peter Parker.
-Edward Cullen’s attraction to Bella Swan
-The character Fela in the Kingkiller Chronicles
-The vast majority of female comic book characters
-The vast majority of male comic book characters (however, different kind of fantasy)
-Zooey Deschanel doing anything whatsoever
I wish nerd movies focused more on feeling both real and being entertaining than taking the cheap shot with mindless nerdsploitation.
