In response to "Living Room Fighter" from The Escapist Forum: Tasty tasty violence and a bit of the Old Red? Oh man, I cannot begin to list the number of times I've wanted to take a piece out of someone I was gaming with because they were being stupidly good at it. Envy is an ugly thing, it seems.
I maintain that beating the crap out of someone in a game is better than doing it with fists. At least that way you can repeat the experience endlessly without the whole dying or assault charges thing.
Though I've never gotten into a real physical fight over a game , I bet we've all had those moments in which we've felt really frustrated at the game itself or other players.
Sometimes you hit the couch, but mostly we curse the enemies and wish we could throw our controllers into the screen.
But hitting players in real life is a whole different level. Some deserve it, but I still get the feeling we feel frustrated because it would've felt better if the tables had turned and we had beat them in-game.
In response to "Looking for Group Therapy" from The Escapist Forum: I feel a very real urge to apologize to my Necromancer in Guild Wars for a number of things. Things like deaths I tried my best to avoid for one, but mainly for the fact at all the armor that's available for her profession makes her look like some sort of fetish enthusiast.
I am so sorry about that, Selene. I really am...
