One example of this at WSVG Toronto was watching Spoh (Canadian) compared to his U.S teammates between their games. After games that they lost, he appeared more “disappointed” than “angry” but was quick to get back to thinking of ways they could improve. The Americans seemed rather angry, but in a way that fueled them to play better and execute their game at a higher level.
Besides that I believe Canadians and Americans are very similar in their gaming. They usually have similar play styles, playtimes, and play ability. They are vocal while playing (if on vent) and have a tendency to favor their own class during balance discussions. They are also usually loyal to their team, and try to work around class differences instead of quickly replacing players.
Overall Canadians and Americans are very similar in their gaming culture, the primary difference comes from the will to win, and what methods they will use to obtain that win the next time they play.

The culture regarding violence in video games is a lot different in Canada then it is in the United States of America, in the United States of America they see violence in video games as a direct cause to violence in real life. Canadians do not share the same view as the United States of America, Canadians do not blame one or two bad apples on something meant to be entertaining.
On the other hand Canadians also play video games much more casually then the typical gamer American. Since the United States of America population significantly outweighs the amount in Canada, the general "hardcore" gamer count will be higher, thus creating more competition and more attention from sponsors.
When looking at a franchise like the LAN center, there is more then 15 times the amount of LAN center's in the United States of America then there are in Canada. This type of divide makes it more likely that a video game player from the United States of America would become more competitive or "hardcore" into a game then a Canadian.
