Do you recognize these sounds? If not, consider yourself fortunate and likely more mentally constitute than the rest of the pathetic gaming community. I’m not petting your more respectable self-control though, so don’t for one minute fantasy yourself perched on a high horse of sorts.
What am I talking about? Simple, the onomatopoeia at the beginning reflects but one grave effect of a deadly sin that continues to cripple mankind. Our failure as a corrupt society (i.e. buying into anything other than a remarkable sense of self-entitlement) is what leads to school bullying, domestic violence, military conflicts, divorce, gang wars, and a whole mess of other moral quandaries. I speak of wrath my readers, and it happens to be breaking your controllers as well. Gosh, how dumb and bourgeoisie are we? Seriously?!
If it’s not our compulsive and excessive competitive nature in the online shooter scene where everyone betrays the rules for the sake of temporary leaderboard glory, it’s one of those bosses that was absolutely designed to jackhammer every button connected to your irritable impulses.
So, how much furniture…how many floors and walls…or worse, friends and relatives, have been victimized by the taste of your plastic childishness? How many George Washingtons (dollar$ for our international audience) have been sacrificed in the name of a lack of justice for your gamer soul? How many trips to the local gaming wares establishment have been necessary to purchase what should be participation supplements, but are instead replacements? On a more humorous note, have any arcades actually made what should never be a dutiful decision to ban your sorry behind?
It’s bad enough that the hardcore demographic bears the stigma of being angry couch potatoes that can’t remember the last time their feet moved more than ten minutes in the great outdoors, but it only validates the stereotype when what is meant to be entertainment becomes everything but. Friends, this isn’t just socially irresponsible, but it’s more importantly immature and opens the doors for irreversible physical and relational health trauma. Will it take high blood pressure and an ego that’s impossible to cope with to open your eyes? Really folks, stop throwing your toddler-esque temper tantrums for the sake of your gamepads’ integrity. Otherwise, your hardware investment over time will embarrassingly compete with (if not succeed) your software collection, and you’ll continue drowning in foolishness that no one wants to see…all because you’re somehow being…*erm*…cheated? Right…..
