OP  6/24/12 11:17:54 PM#1

We've got the second entry in a brand new column from Hillary "Pokket" Nicole. In this second edition, Pokket continues her autobiographical look at the life of a young gamer. Read on!

12:37 p.m. The upside to computer classes is you have a computer sitting in front of you the whole class. This means free reign over the internet. The two guys sitting next to me sat on facebook nearly the whole class. I managed to check Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, 3 of my favorite gaming forums, and any recent columns on MMORPG.com while Farmville is up in one of the tabs. It's amazing how addicting this game can be once you start playing it. I got spammed enough requests to play it, so figured I may as well.

I really fail to see the point of this article.  Most people play games in order to escape the inanities of daily life so why write a column about those uninteresting inanities on a game site?

 

This article would have been much better if you had focused more on the time spent gaming and less on Wal-Mart or conversations with your mother.  Why did you spend so much time playing WoW those nights?  Did something interesting happen while playing?  What about the game or the genre in general makes you play it to the detriment of your daily life?  You mentioned playing DKC2 on Gameboy and a little bit about why you still enjoy it but why not some more detail?  What makes you continue to play this game instead of others and how might that relate to games or life in general?  Why is having a mobile game platform at your side during your day important to you and how does it impact you when the batteries die and you can't play anymore?  These are the questions which your article begs but fails to answer.  Focus less on the events themselves and more on the meanings and lessons which can be drawn from them in order to relate them better to your audience.  

 

Good luck.

It is drivel. Having read both blogs, I still have no idea what the point of this is. I read the introduction, and I do understand that she's trying to showcase her creative writing skills while providing insight into her life. The simple fact of the matter is that I just don't care. I'm not compelled to read this at all because there's nothing drawing me to it. I suppose there are fragments of what you could call a story, but it's not in the slightest bit interesting enough to keep going. If she wants people to read this, she has to give them a reason to. In the meantime, this isn't really content worthy of being showcased. I hate being completely negative. I'm not a negative person, and I bear no grudge against Pokket. That being said, I hope she reads this post and finds at least something constructive in it. It would be great to see her refine this idea she has and post an improvement on it next week.

I fail to see much that is entertaining to this blog. Especially after you read the disclaimer at the top letting you know most of it is fictional. If it was based off true events you could at least read it and think "Man someone is more messed up than me", but you are robbed of that little nugget right away. All in all there is much much more options out there if you want to write a fictional blog that grabs gamers interests. I have enjoyed your video posts and agree with others that you do much better in video than written words.

Donkey Kong Country is one of the best platformers of all time!   Props for that.  However, when something in real life makes you angry and you want to go to an mmorpg like WoW and kill people DON'T GO TO THE DAMN BATTLEGROUNDS!!!  You should be in Redridge Mountains murdering new players!!!  What the hell???  Your troll card is hereby revoked!

[mod edit] These might not be the greatest columns, but they deserve neither the vitriol or the bs previously mentioned.

I was almost 19 years old and wasted my first year in college on Biology. I switched to Civil Engineering even though I sucked at math because a career aptitude test said I might be strong in that field. I started in algebra and studied for 8-12 hours each day until I graduated at the age of 24. I quit games during the school year and took summer classes as well. I lost the urge to play when SWG died and I realized that games are not forever; proven by all of the "WoW-killers". I believe that everybody should follow their dreams, but they have to be realistic and have steps to eventually achieving the dreams. 

tl;dr: Grow a set, put down the controller or step away from the keyboard, study, be a productive part of society (generally). Nobody really cares how fast you can kill a boss. In the words of Duke Nukem, "Come Get Some".

Well, glad I won't bother ever clicking on this thing again. Seems beyond pointless and it's nice to know someone has a column that's basically their own personal blog.

This is exactly why i hate Twitter and Facebook status messages. Diaries are private because noone else cares. Even if they are fake. Oh you just had the most AMAZING grilled cheese sammich... grats? You hate people who dont drive like you want them too? Who doesnt. Really theres a time and place to outline the innerworkings of your own mind, and doing it in public is not it. Thanks but no thanks

Her blog I assume is supposed to be a funny tongue-in-cheek life of gamer blog.  It's called  a fluff piece in news circles.  However like I stated before this one wasn't that funny.

It's not about this being different, it's about it not being quality. If she's going to tell a story, it needs to be a good one, with a purpose. Maybe she just hasn't had enough space for it to evolve into something yet. Maybe she should focus on the contrast between her gaming addiction and a fictional family member's alcoholism. Something. Anything. It doesn't have to be book worthy, but if it's being published here, it shouldn't be highschool level. At least it isn't as bad as that awful "guild sores" comic.

If anything, it was a little depressing.  It was an account about how everything in her day went wrong and how she ended it by spending an hour ruminating on how much she hated her life and then let off steam by playing WoW for a self-abusive amount of time which would cause her next day to pretty much be a repeat of the same misery.  Kinda like that "I'm unhappy because I eat too much and I eat too much because I'm unhappy" type of thing except with games.

 

I hate being so critical and I do wish her the best of luck with improving her column but I think it is important to be honest with someone so they can improve.  It is one thing if you are writing a blog for yourself and you just want to put your thoughts out there and don't care about anyone's opinion but this is being spotlighted at the top of the homepage.

This is way better than the garbage MMO reviews where the writer only made it to level 10 and judges the entire game experience based just off of that. Even though this is fiction it is closest thing to reality this site has offered. I only come here for the forums and not the reviews. Seriously, the Diablo 3 reviewer made it to level 30 and gave the game a 8.5/10 are you kidding me?

Throwing in unrelated things like the Diablo review doesn't really change anything, because it's a different topic altogether. I understand that you're trying to say that this is better by comparison, but that doesn't necessarily make it good, especially considering I never mentioned anything about the usual content. I'm not so wild about it either. Maybe try refuting my claims on a point by point basis instead of not addressing them at all.
