What is going on?
Any ways these are the thoughts that crossed my mind after reading this -
1.Even after being a hardcore gamer I don't think of gaming as art.Gaming or games are not are an art form.However badly you want to slap a sticker on it saying "I call this art,so I have a excuse to my mind that hey look,I am not Gaming,I am making art,I am cool because society demands it" to have peace of mind.Bull!Because you are not making art,or studying art,you are having the time of your life,burning of tons of adrenaline,getting a bit fat in the process and chopping the head off a pissed darkspawn hurlock(I got nostalgic and started playing DA:Origins again recently).Gamers are not cool art making fuglies,they are hot crazy sons of ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ who shoot to kill and can put 007(pfft) to shame with one hand tied behind their back.
2.The reason why I babbled so much on the above point is because I remembered I got very angry some time back with the controversial game developer Bioware,who brought us the even more controversial game "Mass Effect 3",for the record the series was superb up till the end with a bit of glitch,the developers lack of hindsight being the key.Anyway,my point is they were hypocritical douche-bags.At the time of release they said they will not change the end game,because it's their created "Art".And previously the also commented they are going mainstream with masseffect 3.Now my dilemma is when did art become mainstream?Mainstream is mainstream,art is epic,no way art is mainstream.I mean Witcher 2 is dark-art,Max Payne is kinda-sorta modern-art,Diablo 3 is crap-art,COD MW3 is copied-over and over again-but-still-fun-art.But if a game is mainstream,it sure as hell not art,no sirre,not art.
After my epiphany I realized even more strongly that games are not art,at least not,if the self proclaiming artist developers keep making them mainstream and keeps calling those money making rushed out not nearly good enough games art.They stopped being art a long time ago.
OK,then I was done thinking about the title.
3.About the rest of the article.Whoop te damn,who gives a crap!
I have seen Rakin's name crop up in so many heated conversation here in BG alone that the entire topic lost its appeal to me.So a little punk has money and is a bit bitchy,if you give a crap,you are the looser.It is a fine example that not every parent can handle that one bad seed,it happens.About the rest mentioned,people are like that.Some are bitcy,some are nice,some are plain stupid arguing passionately about PC-Hardware and trying to show off as cool kids by bashing newbies.
And anyway,we bangali public are known to be bit of hotheads and and also know-it-all stupidos.I personally stopped giving a crap about these stuff a long time ago.
Also on a personal note,I personally knew skeleton-pro once.He is from the same place as me,Rajshahi.I have nothing against him,but he is not so heavenly to not be in a place like that mentioned in the article.Because I have seen him in action of doing the stuff mentioned in the article.
Also,another thing on the article,knowing PC-hardware and being hardcore gamer is not the same thing.For one thing PC-Hardware is not limited to buying the keyboard and the super cooler and knowing what north-bridge is.And,as I have always said,the character is as good as the gamer controlling it,nothing to do with the Razer something headphone.
I will also like to point out that,multi player gamer and single player gamers are not in anyway frigging same.Ponder on that,I will not go in details about it now.Later maybe.
Conclusion,please stop.Games are for fun.Don't be so socially retarded that you have to make a mess with gaming too.Don't ruin it for the rest of us.
P.S on't read it,I myself forgot what I was writing about at one point and also forgive the messed up article-writing,I recently started on how to write better,and couldn't resist after reading the linked artice and what with all the crammed up stuffed in my mind.
