When we see a person call themselves Veterans in games we...

Hey,

I'm not a noob

Or a noobie

And I dont live in my mother's basement

Or eat hot pockets

Or own any 1978 star wars action figures

And I don't know

BubbaFett90210 , IPWNZJOO or XXxSephiroth25487xXX from xbox live

Although I'm sure they're really really nice

I have a Real Life family and kids, not an internet dating subscription

I speak English not internet short hand or dysfunctional complex keyboard slang

And I pronounce it noob not newb or newbie or nub

I can proudly wear my guilds logo on my avatar for fun, I believe in group play, soloing

And diversity in game play

And that anyone who associates veteran with video games as a personal title is a moron

An MMORPG is not an MMO

And it is foolish to say otherwise

SWG Pre CU is dead

And they will never revive it, NEVER get over it

And the unfortunate part is... your not a veteran

Your name is Joe, Bob, Brian and so on

You are not a “Veteran”, you are a GAMER!

 

A few friends last night were black balling SWG fans and told me about the gamers version of the I am Canadian beer commercial and it made me laugh somewhat and thought I would post it, probably sure most have seen it, but eh for those who haven't here you go.

Sorry to SWG pre/cu players/ex players. Not a stab at anyone, I just had a short laugh over it and sharing it with others.

A game is just that... a game, not an emotional crutch.

    lol, my parents back when I was still a kid, bought a bunch one time from a nieghbour i remember, telling me to never open em and leave them on a shelf....

    o.O' i was probably like 7 or somewhere in there.

    Of course Im going to open the boxes and smash em together screaming "die die die" to one of the figures XD 

    I even was spanked for that and i remember it being a long time before I was bought anything again lol

    I never had any old school SW action figures that were actually unopened, so I played with the old ones just as much as I played with the action figures from the mid 90s.  Surprisingly, they're still in relatively decent shape.

    My father in-law laughed when he heard that story the first time, told me I pissed away a fortune. (Probably not that big of one).

    But I did get the last laugh when he told me he had a gold mine once until he gave them to my wife when she was young and lost them.... they were some nasty fugly looking christian missionary/moses/roman kinda figures....

    I doubt I ever laughed so hard in my entire life and ever will laugh that hard again.

    You can never go wrong with chicken on a pizza.

    Hey.

    I'm a veteran of the 37 year war.

    It started when I was born.

    So far, I'm still alive and kicking ass.

    But the enemy is a sneaky bastich.
