Parents sue WoW over son's death - Page 6  

post #51 of 71
I will say that after playing a lot of FPS games, my first paintball experience was much better than I expected. I knew where to hide and not to just run out into an open room and hope to shoot everyone that moves (like you see in the movies). I didn't try to wisp a magic spell of retardation on my opponents, either. I, for one (just my opinion) can't stand games like WoW because you have no controll of what you're doing. It takes no quickness or planning to defeat a single opponent. Sure, you have to plan ahead of how to defeat an entire army of bad guys, but when you get there, you click on the guy, hope you don't "miss" (which is defined by the computer, not by skill) and hope he doesn't crush you with his 900-lb club...

And I really don't like how people consider war a "repitition" of history. Believe it or not, when two countries are about to go to war they won't look in a history book and say "Oh, look how bad war is! Why are we fighting? Let's all be friends and dance." Countries go to war because of political issues, whether it includes stubborn thick-headed people wanting to do something so bad, forcing the military to get involved, or to fight off alien invaders to protect all of mankind. Sadly enough, war will ALWAYS be present as long as we humans exist.
FPS games help increase hand-eye coordination. Congratulations! You know what else helps increase hand-eye coordination? Baseball, darts, and poking pre-chosen spots on a wall.

I noticed that nothing you just actually said had anything to do with what I pointed out. Note that I stated that I play FPS's, and quite a bit, too. I just prefer MMO's. Also note that after playing these FPS's, I still have no idea how to load a gun. If video games could really train you to use a weapon, well, lord, a breakthrough in efficient military training! Also note, as I said, just because I play WoW, it does not mean I think I can fly. I also do not think I can cast magic spells. Want to know why? Because video games shouldn't be so integrated with real life that you're relying on them to help you in a desperate situation. Video games are fantasy. Whether they're made to be realistic or not, they're still fantasy. Please, get over it.

Secondly, I said nothing about war being a repetition of history. I'm beginning to think you didn't actually read what I said, but instead you're just blindly trying to refute it. I said that FPS's re-enact war scenes. I did not say that war is a repetition of history. I really don't know where you got that from. Therefore, your second paragraph means absolutely nothing to me. I won't even bother with it.

Pinhead, the points you made were valid, in some part. It is true that FPS's give you some idea of what to do in things like paintball and lasertag. This coming from both an FPS player and a paintballer. Saying that MMORPG's do not require quickness or planning, though, is wrong. I do have control of what I'm doing. Most aspects of the game require correct positioning at the correct times, exact timing on the use of certain spells, as well as quick thinking when a desperate situation comes about. This added to the extensive planning done before-hand, especially on end-game content, means that WoW is very much based on skill, quick-thinking, and planning. If it happens that a spell or hit misses, then that means more quick thinking for me to do, on what I should do next.

Once again, playing World of Warcraft does not mean that I try to cast spells on people in real-life. That's all I'm trying to say here.

Ok, I get it. So basically you don't want people to make anymore stereotypes about WoW players, but it's alright for you to make them against FPS players. Yeah, it all makes sense now

All FPS games don't re-enact war scenes. I can name plenty of first person shooters that have nothing to do with "war".
Another stereotype is saying all FPS players take pride in their kill/death ratio. I know a lot of people that can care less about their score, and just because some people happen to play better than others, it doesn't mean they're crazed about getting "l33t skills". If anyone should be obsessed with scores, or "Level UP Dragonbelts"(whatever the hell it is you call it) for that matter, it's the WoW players.

I dare you to name one case where an FPS player was dumb enough to commit suicide.

I can't believe the argument above, guys, sit down, look at the monitor, and actually think what you are arguing about and most importantly where you are arguing about it.

Yes, I won an argument on the internet! Thank God, now my life will be so much better and the money will come and I will have beautiful women right and left who like me for who I am and and and.... Wait noooooo thats not right.

This is absolutely ridiculous. I post over a week ago on this thread, talking about how this kid lost his life, and now it's about FPS vs. MMORPG? This thread shouldn't even exist anymore. I play both, as many other people do. It's so pointless trying to argue which one is better, because you need a different mindset for both games. Just take a step back, look how retarded you all sounds, and just shut up already.

Yeah man. I have fun debating, I don't do it because I think I'll change someone's opinion or anything. I just enjoy it.

Either sarcasm is impossible to convey on the internet, or you're joking. Doesn't really matter which.
