Ubergeek,(aka the Grog-meister) who incidentally does not comment, (too cool, I guess) messaged me today. Apparently he is reading the blog, not commenting as usual.
"Was "W.O.W. people" supposed to refer to World of Warcraft ? Listen to the lyrics of the song. it's about console gaming."
I suspect at this point he is trying to tell me there is a difference. Not being a gamer, I assume that gaming is gaming. My point being that a gamer would find this funny and totally be able to relate to it. "LOL so you get it?"
"I was wondering why you had it posted relating to wow"
"You're about to tell me there is a difference and it is making it soooo much funnier."
"Console gamers are the ones who are too lazy or stupid to work a computer game."
Holy Crap, can you just imagine him delivering that statement whilst glancing down the bridge of his nose? Fuck! Put a British accent to it, way funnier.
Anyway. That got me thinking, are all 'computer gamers' infected by this superiority complex? I mean. Hand eye coordination versus (I don't know) whatever puzzle solving skills are involved in computer games? And honestly, most video games can be played on the computer and vise versa. So why be offended if I don't make the distinction?
Who would actually win in a sword fight? Console or computer gamer?
