P.S. - Remember, don't feel offended by this.
Well I've lately been noticing a bunch of dudes getting a crap load of games, whoring off of their parents' money and generally being a bunch of whiny b*tches. I remember going over to this freshmen's house one day and he freaking screamed to his mom, "NO MOM, WE HAVE TO GO BUY THE GAME! I WANT ROCK BAND I WANT ROCK BAND I WANT ROCK BANDDD!!!!"
How f*cking ungrateful do you have to be to act this way? If any of you have ever done this before, please slap yourselves in the face and apologize to your mom/dad or whoever you harassed.
Next topic. Where the hell do you guys get all the money to afford your games? I know that most of us come from a middle-class environment where you can pitch in enough money after a little while to buy something you don't necessarily need. But come on? Do you guys really need to get every single new game that has to deal with killing people or something wholly and arbitrarily inhumane? I've never liked shooters, mainly due to the fact that I find no enjoyment in killing random computer generated images as a substitute for killing humans. What type of logic is that? Somebody told me that people like to play these games as a means of simulating the real deal. What type of sick society is the 21st century harboring? Think about it in a moral, ethical sense (if you can, that is). But yeah, back to the money issue...guys, I needed to sell my Xbox 360 and all my games so that I could help my mom pay bills. I had to sell two Xbox controllers on the spot because I needed money for groceries. It's not like I'm not working either! I have a part-time job working on a pier and still, purchasing anything extra seems like such a difficult milestone to reach.
Next topic. Goddammit, this one truly bugs me. Addiction to video gaming can destroy your life! When I was about twelve, there was this one game (an online MMORPG) that I loved to play called ConquerOnline. I was sitting behind the damn computer for six hours + almost all the time playing the *CENSORED* game whereas I could have spent that time reading a book, learning how to play a musical instrument, or doing some type of physical activity. It wasn't until two years later that I quit that game and got a reality check. I'm not kidding with my statement of the severity of gaming addiction. Addiction usually results to lack of sleep, depression, bad memory, and aggressiveness. The bare minimum for a healthy sleeping schedule is said to be eight hours every day. Sleeping for two hours if at all and carrying that out for a long period of time is SO unhealthy! Sure, you might not die or get heart-cancer from lack of sleep, but your older years are going to f*ck you in the ass. I also hate it when people don't want to socialize or hang out because they just want to sit down the whole day and finish level 30 on extremely-hard mode. Gah! What also bites me is the lack of emotionality and the inability to think abstractly as an upstanding citizen of the global community in these people. It's quite sad really.
Next topic. Crap, I ran out of topics. Well that's it. I hope you enjoyed reading my little rant. Feel free to comment. Now you know that even the most redundant, obtuse, absurd, impertinent, extraneous member of a forum has feelings.
