UGH. my sentiments of world of weirdos [world of warcraft to most people] are so strong i had to express it in capital letters. capitals! you know it’s serious when that happens. nothing i hear about this game inspires me to play it. i’m sorry, i have a real job, and i cannot take time out to go and schedule a time to raid your fictitious little bitch of a village.
and this bullshit about paying to play? excuse me? real money? every month? fuck that shit. i’m going to take that money and buy some gas and matches. then i am going to hold an immense bonfire and burn the shit out of every copy of this game that i find.
plus all this clan crap and guild stuff… man, i don’t wanna join that shit.
anyway, that’s just my opinion. and before i get a deluge of hate mail, let me just say that i’d obviously never burn plastic. bad for the earth AND my lungs. plus i would probably offend the handful of people that i know who play it. they tell me that the allure of the game is the strategy and the people they meet.
i guess i just have a problem believing that games like this, a dependence on real-world resources like time and money can be so popular.
i cannot believe this msnbc story i read the other day. winda benedetti is hilarious, but she was very factual about it. she’s very professional, so maybe she felt the same way but was too classy to call out this asshole. i’m not classy – like you know, i am an obnoxious gamer and i am full of opinions.
the article was about some guy who pointed out to blizzard/activison an error in the game. maybe it was an expansion pack. i don’t know. i started to watch the video, but it was so gouge-out-my-own-eyes boring that i blacked out. that probably would have been the end of it, but it turns out that blizzard REWARDED HIM. with his own character, no less. seriously? why the HELL don’t games do their OWN quality assurance?! why is this concept so dead?!
fuck. i’m gonna blackout again, this time from rage.
