Well, Howdy. This is my first post here, so i'll try to make it good. My topic is fads entering games. Today, I logged onto world of warcraft to discover that my guild had everal new members. One f them was named "Emocow" I just about filled my undershorts. It's not that I have idealogical differences. Well, I do. But that's not the point. If you want to cut yourself, or listen to heavy metal music, or slap a happy face sticker on everything, that's your thing. But don't bring your fads into the games you play with others. I petitioned the removal of this player from our guild (not because of the name) due to the problems it was causing in our day to day gaming. Try doing a Kara raid with a whiny 11 year old doped up on riddalin thiking that life sucks. It's hard. I sat through a grindingly slow 4 and a half hours on voice chat with a kid. Orating poetry. Crying. Sad poetry. It was harsh, but it's not just problems with this little emo fad. I've grouped with guys that had their metallica so loud over the headset that I had to take my headphones off. I've had to deal with optimistic little people going on about "At least I didn't pull the elites over there too". I've had enough of fads coming into a FANTASY ROLE PLAYING GAME. Well, let's see some poss, cause I have a bet riding on whether or not I can beat my friends posts. Happy Trails
EDIT: Don't gripe about emos, gripe about fads in games. If emo is the fad you're griping about, go ahead, but keep it game related.
