It is fairly obvious for anyone to see that was his intent. Where it becomes lame is that it simply isn't funny and others in the past have done a much smarter and more satirical twist on the subject matter. Without being so transparent on the subject matter.
...and I'm with dinams. I think you're giving the OP more credit on his implication than was meant.
1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.
2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.
3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.
This have been a good conversation
I doubt this is real, but if it is... being a "real man" equals being a immature moron? Who threatens to beat someone down just because they laughed at you/your son? You sound like you have anger issues, man. You also sound like the type of person that threatens others online... you know the "oh yeah? well come say that to my face, I'll have you know I can bench press a pregnant elephant, brah!" type.
But again, this is probably a joke of some kind. I call Poe's law on this.

I think most just think it is remarkably unfunny and simply lame.
It is lame if you are unable to see that he is making fun of stereotypes that are often attached to those who play video games. As well as concept of online bullying and in game threats that sometime extend to real life.
However, if you read 8 pages you would realise that majority is caling OP's story as 'bullshit' and 'unbelievable' ..rofl!!
Man, I think you are overstimating OP intentions
Its like looking at a 4 chan post and trying to see implicit critic
No i believe he got exact reactions he was hoping for.
"The problem is that the hardcore folks always want the same thing: 'We want exactly what you gave us before, but it has to be completely different.'-Jesse Schell
"Online gamers are the most ludicrously entitled beings since Caligula made his horse a senator, and at least the horse never said anything stupid."-Luke McKinney
It doesn't matter whether the story is true enough, the fact that people even think about making these statements or playing out these scenarios is wrong enough.
Besides, who goes into gamestop stores anymore? I order what I need online (cheaper) and get it within days (Amazon Prime FTW).
Lets pretend for a moment this is true: Is this what wow players are like? Glad I never signed up for that then, i'd be beating up kids eatin skittles every day :P
But I will stop pretending now. I might think it was a little more truthful if YOU got beat up, and the guy was a bum on the corner with 1 arm.

Bra why would anyone of us give a flying shit about an ipod installed in your truck?

- Three guys vs one- Have kid to protect (can't run)- One charging in for a fight (can't talk out of situation)
I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with WoW or w/e. I'd try to beat the shiet out of the guy as well, to make other two too scared to join in.
You have to act if you want to live in a different world.

I too have a son and if i seen/heard anyone making fun of him or anything they would get a baseball bat to the head. When anythign taht involves my son i dont give 2 shits what happens to me as long as i can punish thouse who try to hurt him. This is why i always carry a bat in my vehicles
A) Having your father in prison and seeing him killing/beating someone up
Someone makes fun of the game he enjoys playing
You go ahead and pick the one you think is more harmfull for you kid

At that point you clearly have no choice and indeed taking on the "leader" of such group alone instead of all three is the best way to go.
Holy crap. And I thought this was one thread surely satirical enough that nobody would take it as a real thing.
Originally posted by Thebigthrill I took my son to Gamestop today to get him a new WiiU controller. I dont like the WiiU but he needed a extra controller. While I was their my 7 yearold was looking at a Pandaria strat guide. This guy probably around 20-25 (Ill know soon enough when I go to court) comes up to us and says "Hey bra? People still play Wow?" I said "Yea brazier , alot of people do". For the next few minutes I can see and hear him and his friends laughing at me and my son. So I did what any real man would do, I approached them. I told them I drive a truck , I eat beer batterd fish , I hunt , I own two trucks , I call my wife my old lady , and I have a pair of brass knuckles in my glove compartment and if you bra's want to follow me outside we can settle this. They laughed and walked away. We bought the WiiU controller and the game stop worker told me these guys heckle customers alot about the games they play , he thanked me for standing up to them and said we need more real men in this world like me. As we were walking to my ford F150 truck with Ipod 5 mount installed I noticed the three youths were following us. I turned around and yelled "Bring it braziers!" one of the bra's charged at me , I told my son to get in the F150. I grabbed my brass knuckles and proceeded to give him a beatdown with my brawney arms ,there were skittles flying everywere as i reigned down heavy blows on his skull. The rest of his friends went running away. I stopped beating him for a second and told him he had a choice , he could apologize for spamming nonsence in online games or he could die. He apologized and I was later arrested. Sometimes in life you have to stand up for yourself and fellow gamers. Sometimes you have to tolerate immature kids in games , some like to talk about Roseanne Arnolds ass , some want all your stuff and some ninja your loot. But sometimes you find that person in a store or a mall and then its go time. Thats my cool story bra.
You forgot to add," true story bra and then I woke up."
remember it's never really happened unless you add the,"true story bro" to the end.
This reminds me of the time I went to pick up my wife from her Christmas Party, which was taken over by international terrorists. Luckily I'm a cop and I managed to save everyone and kill the bad guys. The bit were I had no shoes and had to walk over broken glass was a pain though.
All the best.
The story would be better if you add this part when you ask your son to get the brass knuckles.
"Looks like it's time to kick as* and chew bubblegum. And I'm all out of bubblegum. Get me my brass knuckles, son."

You eat fatty foods, you can't afford a proper car and so have to use a working vehicle for transport, you disrespect your partner and show your son that violence is the answer to verbal sparring.
I think you need work on making your fictional hero cool.
