Der Poopflinger: BroadbandGremlin: I feel like I'm communicating with a 12 year old who thinks insulting me is the equivalent to "pwwwwn" me...

I didn't use a bunch of swear words in random order that make no sense, also I didn't work in some sort of "I plowed your mom" insult. So that should eliminate that I'm not a 12y/o.


Honestly, how many adults find their primary retort is to call someone a troll?

You know what's funny? The people who say that video games are a waste of time, yet have plenty of time to post about it in this thread.

Evidently, Fark is more important to them than their children, spouses, and work.

Mitch Taylor's Bro: LOL, I'd just like simple info, like "sniper in building 2" or "there's a claymore by that truck."


that too, of course.
But snippets like "5 kills for them to win, don't go in room X" and similar shouldn't be ignored either.

The_EliteOne: This thread is filled with butthurt. In my high school and college years, I've probably killed thousands of "mature" gamers. And then virtually tea bagged your corpse for the lulz.

Wanna know why?

Because you ain't got no game, son.

You wanna beat me? Learn that hitting a shoulder with the sniper rifle does not count as a head shot - only a head shot with insta kill. Figure out precisley where, when and at what angle to toss that sticky grenade so it lands on your enemies fache'.

Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, and get better. One way to do this is to get some friends who are, oh I don't know, actually good at games? Yeah, instead of taking your kids out to the park, try finding some people to run skirmishes with and for the type of god learn the damn maps. I'm tired of you old people running around with the pistol after you spawn because you don't know where the rocket launcher is.


that's a lot of virgin talk right there

It's not just they're a waste of time. It's that they're a childish waste of time.

Also, there is different amount of attention required between gaming and posting. This is something one can do while multitasking. Gaming requires one's full attention.

Der Poopflinger: also, I'd like to add, I don't understand how people get bent out of shape about MP gaming in something like reach or COD. It's just a game, you're not really dead, and get this, in a moment you'll respawn and get to die again. I just play to have fun, because if you're not having any fun what's the point?


Heh... My younger brother lives with me and he plays COD all the time. I love to sit in the living room and listen to him get mad at the game. It's the same as when he was still in high school with unrestricted swearing because he's not living at home anymore. A few weeks ago he was playing for several hours and it was nothing but f* this and f* that. I sent him a text saying, "You know, some people play video games to relax."

He just laughed. He yells at me when we play anything co-op because I like to hang back and see what's going on while he grabs a bullet hose and runs in guns blazing.

I'm saying I choose not to engage in recreational activities dominated by children who are not related to me by blood. I don't go down to the skate park and slide down a rail and I don't go online and listen to random kids scream obscenities about my mother. (Unless you're referring to Fark - Politics.)

If you aren't trolling, you're merely the trolliest sincere person that uses trolling cliches and timing to make a straight point ever. Trolling has a few markers, and your posts contain them all. Overly earnest, judgmental, snotty, and oddly persistent. I don't even really play video games and can see the crafted bait.

In other words, you may not be a troll, but you're wearing a troll uniform.

When it comes to CoD co-op, there's just not that much detail worth hanging around for. The mass majority of the content is experienced during the "running forward to the next bullet room" parts.

No, what I meant was I can't even get basic info like that through my headset, let alone higher-level tips like your example. It's all trash talk and BS.

Sometime in the past 3 years people started confusing "disagreement" with the term "trolling." Yes, I vehemently believe that gaming with children for more than an hour a day past the age of 25 is a sign of a mental disorder.

BroadbandGremlin: Der Poopflinger: BroadbandGremlin: I think the important message here is that if you're 25+ and gaming more than 1 hour a day you probably have a mental disorder.

Why aren't you playing with your kids, helping your wife with the housework, or catching up on work? Stop neglecting your family.

The reason you think online games are ruined by tons of mocking kids is because those games are for children. YOU ARE TOO OLD TO BE THERE if a majority of the gamers are snot-nosed kids.

Would you stroll down to the local basketball court and challenge a bunch of kids half-your-age to basketball? No? Then why do you go online and do the same thing virtually?

you suck at trolling

tomcatadam:

Really, Call of duty (especially on consoles what with the auto aim zoom snapping) is a game with a pretty low skillcap.
You can go from just beginning to near-pro level after owning the game for a week or two and playing it once every couple of nights.

Though you're right, playing smart - thinking about your next move and theirs, coordinating with teammates - is both far more entertaining and far more effective than just having twitch skills.


That's not true. I've put some hours in on Black Ops and I still suck pretty bad most times. But I do enjoy more the objective games more, and I've got my fingers crossed for the support angle in MW3.

In the sense of an adult specifically seeking to play games with children, I can agree with your point. When I go online, I prefer to play against/with gamers my own age.

I once went into a table-top game store to get a Rubik's Cube.... a stereotypical 27 year-old, overweight, greasy hair/skin basement dweller was complaining to the manager about what cards his 9 year-old YuGiOh opponent was playing. Now THAT was sad.

I still remember, I had just turned 30 and suddenly realized that gaming wasn't getting me any closer too owning a house, vacationing overseas, or retiring to live aboard a sailboat. I finished up Final Fantasy VII, set down my game controller, and never picked it up again.

And now, as I'm out working on my sailboat in the driveway in front of my house, I realize I don't miss gaming one bit.


I concur. Too many of my friends are locked into games. I signed off videogames when I hit 16. I got frustrated at the complete lack of strategy, and dead focus on K:D ratios. Signed off TV too.

Life has been much better since.

My friend and I used to get drunk and play Halo and just spew terrible cursing at everyone while shooting our teammates. We did this for four hours one night and received quite a few death threat messages.

It was good fun following someone we picked in the lobby with the stupidest name and shooting them with the battle rifles to take down their shield and get them killed by the opponent. They cant boot you from the game if you dont actually betray them!

LOL I haven't done that either! I'm just laughing at the bitter adult who's worked himself into a frothing rage in a Fark thread about the childish children playing children's games with CHILDREN ARRGGGHHH
 
2011-09-30 03:23:05 PM  
I tended to start my XBL gaming sessions, when I bother using the headset, by saying "yes, I know I'm horrible at this, but since I've got better things to do than hone my gaming skills 24/7, I don't care if you think I suck. I'm over it already."

Usually it gets me laughs. Once, when on without a headset, some guy started ragging on my nick, and wouldn't let it go the whole game. Other people inevitably joined in. Finally, I put on the headset when someone asked why I hadn't responded, and replied "I'm married. I just pretend the people I don't want to listen to are my wife nagging me about something." That got me a half-dozen friend invites from like-minded folks.
