If gaming is a sin: a guilty pleasure, something to be a glutton for, does this mean that there is a special place in hell for gamers? It stands to reason that there would be, as there is a place for all who partake of other fruits of man. But where... where in the lake of fire would a career gamer fit into the pit? Beyond that, what would this sad subject have to endure for eternity?
My take on the whole subject would be something comparable to your worst gaming experience that you could possibly dream up and then toss that out the window, because that would be too easy. For me I would say my I would have to suffer for the rest of existence with the game Pong. Sure Pong isn't that bad but I would have to play it with a controller that only half works. And as I madly twist the controller and the paddle barely moves and then I loose, again and it resets, I look over at the guy next to me and he has a color television with Halo 3 playing. My less than HD T.V. pales in comparison and yet the Halo gaming punk, known only to me as "Skilled_BooB_NooB_Hunter12," seems to think it's okay to yell, scream and point about how much fun he is having and how little I must be having. Oh, why must he do this every time I loose my game? Like clockwork reiterating that I'm just playing Pong while patting me hard on the back and shaking me vigorously because of his excitement.
I hate him.
Damn! I just lost again. It's so hot here... and always on the cusp of intolerable annoyance. I now only pray for reincarnation and that the cruel world will once again call me so I can repent and never play videogames again. I can only imagine how much fun the life of a casual gamer must have in heaven. Sure you'll have your Wii and DS games there... the Japanese are huge in heaven, but you'll also get to play the games you neglected in life from your gaming abstinence. Man, play Halo 3 with Master Chief, screen name: Cortana69baby. It must truly be a fun place to party at. I must work harder to get to this place.
Oh man. Halo 3 called out to me. I couldn't help myself I'm so weak. Well, I will never get to play with Master Chief in the sky.
As a side note: I would like to apologize for the Halo 3 centric nature of this blog posting. It was not my intention to make the "casuals" uncomfortable. I'm not game-racist... some of my favorite games are casual. Really they are.
