On second thought, it’s just not worth it anymore. I’m just sick of dealing with stupid people.
It’s not just the recent discussions, it’s just something that’s been building for a long time. I’m fucking sick and tired of stupid people coming along and thinking they have the one magic bullet that dozens of really smart people spending decades thinking about the problems have somehow missed. Yes, that’s right, we’re all a bunch of fucking retards that couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the bottom, thanks for finally noticing! *scream* The arrogance is just galling. No wonder Jessica stopped writing her column; pearls before swine, indeed.
And, don’t get me started on the fucking wannabes. I WATN 2 MAEK GAEM! Hey, fuckhead, then go make a goddamned game. Quit telling me how wonderful your ideas are and how much I suck for not using them. Maybe you’ll finally realize why we don’t listen to your aimless ramblings: because we’ve already thought of that idea and knew immediately it was the stupidest fucking thing we ever thought of. We just don’t feel like committing professional suicide to teach you how truly dumb your ideas are.
If it stopped there, perhaps I could tolerate it. After all, everyone works with idiotic co-workers and colleagues. But, no, then we have the goddamned players. “I want innovation!” “Will you pay for it?” “FUCK NO! Give me better stuff without raising the price! Oh, and it better be pretty!” Sorry, out of magic pixie dust today, bitch at me again tomorrow. Not that I have to tell you that, you’ll do it anyway. Ever thought about turning off the computer, leaving the basement, and trying to get laid? It might resolve some of those insecurity issues. A bit challenge, I know, because I wouldn’t fuck most of you even using SOE’s customer service.
Of course, that brings us to the larger issue: business. It’s a virtual parade of stupidity out there when it comes to business. “Let’s clone the popular game!” Well, maybe you should try something different. “Okay, let’s clone Second Life!” That’s so not what I fucking meant, shitbags! You wouldn’t know an original idea if Neil Gaiman came up and tattooed it on the inside of your eyelid so you could study it while sleeping. Then there’s the morons that say things like, “I have this new idea: it’s like an existing game, but…” STOP! You just defined “unoriginality” in a few sentence fragments. If you have to compare your idea to something else, you almost certainly do not have an original idea. And if I were to kill the mouth-breathers that come up with stupid shit like that, then *I* would be the criminal!
It’s just too fucking much anymore. I’m sick of it all, and I’m quitting this goddamned industry. The TV said there’s courses in motorcycle repair, and that’s sounding mighty appealing right now.
Fuck off and die,
Personal to Jessica: See your email for my formal resignation.
P.S. Yes, it’s an April Fool’s joke. You can’t get rid of me that easily!
P.P.S. People are still stupid. :P
