Complex Superiority

On being better at being worse than you.

Read Full Article

Nobody is worse than me!
And I was thinking the tittle was another jab at PC gamers.
This seems... random. Are we in for a story arc again?

I don't have a superiority complex, everyone else has an inferiority complex.

True story.

Well, at least she isn't telling people to thank god for her.
So it's not that bad yet.

Wonder how Erin's therapist would deal with her superiority complex?

So Erin, here's a list of all the ways in which you suck...

Firstly, I like the wierd-smiling-lemon-potato thing on her shirt (or is it one of those Mario ghosts*)

Secondly, I don't need a superiority complex! I just know I'm better than everyone else! Its THAT simple people!
(Also, if I had one, it would be bigger than theirs)

*Just confirm it for me, don't confirm and say the name so that I look like a moron and you secretly make preening noises like: Mmmmmmmm-mhmmmmm-mhhhhhh

Me: Hey Erin, I know a girl who's far cuter then you when she blushs.

Erin: N-no you don't...

It reminds me of Scrubs.

Carla: "Are you familiar with the term "Delusions of grandeur"?"
Janitor: "I believe I coined that term."

One of the best quotes from the series.

That is so true in real life! I've known people like that!!! People who'd one-up you on anything just because they HAD to "come out on top". I didn't know that "superiority complex" was the technical term for it.

I like how Erin has no eyes in the last picture, it's like she is blind to her own superiority complex.

It's a gruesome that Cory and Grey should care.

Must be a pretty bad series then.

Damn it. I've had a similar conversation with a friend before.

Don't you read everything with a gravely Batman voice?

Daystar Clarion:

youknow, i can get behind that.. if only people knew how easy things really are..

Panel 3/4: allofmyHNNNNNNGG

Superiority complex? Why are you saying it in such tone? Are you implying that it's a bad thing?

Looks like a Lemon Demon reference to me.

Seems to me a superiority complex would be the least of Miss Psycho McSeesVideoGames' problems.

Is Erin like a real person? Or is she just a character?

I dont really like this cartoon, but I gotta say, I smiled....not bad! xD

I love these one of off comcis. They're pretty funny, but what happened to the story arc we were going through, with the video game characters and all that. They just all... Disappeared. I mean, they aren't even in the background of these more "normal" episodes. I guess it really isn't a bad thing, but I feel like nothing got resolved. She just... Stopped.

Oh whoop de do, so this nonsensical video game humor strip is once again trying to go for a realistic, serious plot arc.

Alright people, which one of you bumped the writers' "M*A*S*H" switch?

Is- Is that an Outlaw Star reference above your avatar?

I can't imagine anyone not doing that. You all just read this in the Bat-voice now, didn't you?

No, of course it isn't, what makes you think that?

Explanation? How bout this?

Best thing about that show? It was only like 10 episodes. More anime should learn its lesson in brevity. Looking at you Naruto/Bleach and all others like them.

Ishal:
snip

10? Outlaw Star was 25 episodes long :D

FFP2:
Is Erin like a real person? Or is she just a character?

Just a character. If anything, she could be loosely based on Cody and Grey's views on video games and day-to-day shit. She's mainly completely fictional, though.

Are you having a stroke?

Well shit, guess it was. Wiki does say 25-26. Goes to show how long its been since I've seen it. I need watch that again.

Still in 25 episodes it accomplishes more than others can do with 200 :p

Curious question, really, it has no "right answer". If Erin claims that her complex is more than her friend's, she reveals an inability to accept being "lesser", even if in doing so she belittles herself. If, on the other hand, Erin agrees and states that her friend's complex is worse than hers, she reveals her equal inability to accept inferiority by claiming a (known undeserved) superior station.

Clever girl...

which, incidentally, is the only correct response to that statement (in the correct voice and tone, so as to convey the Jurassic Park reference)... followed by either a blank stare until she tries to argue the point, which is then ignored or dismissed, or a rapid subject change, ideally something about food, or...

Captcha: cats pajamas

...cute animals. Well said, Captcha!

Psychology!

Jodan:

This isn't the complex Erin needs, but it's the complex she deserves.

Does this mark a return to story comics?

Me55enger:

Dammit! I was coming on to say that, you only beat me by about 7 hours...
