I got a job and a boyfriend and rehearsals and a LIFE.

Years ago I worked at a Gamestop and this is exactly what it was like going to work every day. People there just couldn’t comprehend the concept that video games were just a casual hobbie of mine, and not a way of life. :)
Yep seems about right. lol
I always disable public chat in online games, so: in space nobody hears your cries. But otherwise, spot on :D
I only enable public voice chat when I want the little pubescent spuds to hear me laugh at them in triumph right before I log off to spend time with my significant other.
Report for AFK plz
I guess that’s as accurate as it gets…
It wasn’t like this in City of Heroes. At all. The community was first-rate and inclusive; if you were a racist homophobe and said racist and/or homophobic things, you’d get booted. It’s a shame NCSoft killed it off even though it was making money.
Although you better not say you have a life on any video game, insta flame/troll incoming.
Whenever you suck at a game and are getting pwned/raped/detroyed/etc. just say the opponent is a 13 year old nerd with no life and call it a day.Dignity reclaimed. Because you know.. being good at a game can only mean just that ;)
Pretty much. It also saves me the trauma of having to consider the idea that there are adults out there who act like 14 year old’s because that’s the best they can do. Indeed, it is comfort to believe that all the silly, whiny, foul mouthed carrying on, on Trade Chat is a bunch of unsupervised 14-21 year old males, taking time from j***ing off to grace WoW with their collective wisdom. The alternative is too depressing.
A little too much overcompensation here… I’m going to assume that some 25 year old living in his parents basement made this.
I don’t know, seems pretty accurate to me.
I imagine 25 year olds living in their parents basement would be barely distinguishable from those teenagers/young kids above. :P
This was made by The Oatmeal. Look, it’s at the bottom of the comic and everything. If you bother to check him out, you’ll find your assumption is incorrect.
LOL way too accurate. You can always tell when school is out on LOTRO, especially if you’re in Bree. And especially since it’s gone FTP
Pretty accurate to my DCUO experience. Although I loved that game to death and villain side was actually pretty mature, commissions/rehearsal/freelancing took over compared to my under 18 league mates. No way I could finish T4 armor without half the freetime they have (and now it’s been upped to T5 since I stopped, mama mia!).
I do dream of the occasional bounty or raid every now and then though, maybe when I finally have free time (almost never) I’ll pop in again, and be the noobiest, squishiest healer evar from my long time away.
Hmmmm. Pretty much spot on, except for the wife and sex bit….. Middle age nerds still nerds…. :)
Why would someone play an online game when their life could interrupt at any moment?
Now that’s pretty rude. If you have a life, go live it. Stop wasting everyone else’s time.
Sits down to play a game, obviously with his friend.
Wife interrupts with activities that require a tremendous amount of planning and forethought.
Any good gamer is 14.
You need planning and forethought to drink beer and have sex? Your life must S…
It looks like he had to think about it. He had to think about it?
