Hell is other people.
(Since we’ live in a world full of other people…does it then follow that we’re all in hell?…..someone enlighten me,please….)
I have, in the past dismissed Counter Strike as a pointless game of senseless violence.
I stand by this opinion.
It IS violent.
I have seen my friends, succumbing one by one, like zombies to the spell of this seemingly addictive game. ( Apparently we have a thing called the 6 Clan…)
So I decided to explore it.
Know thy enemy, Wise Man says.
So today, during a 2 hour break, I decided to join some friends for a round of good ol’ killing.
I didn’t actually play, but to be honest, just watching them SHOOT PEOPLE was strangely……fascinating..And invigorating…hehe….( blood splatters everywhere…whee…)
It was actually fun.
I admit (guiltily) that the most FUN bit was watching my friend kill people.
She got killed so many times, that whenever she managed to kill anyone, I felt satisfied on her behalf.
Vengeance, as they say, is sweeeeeeeeeet.
I was kinda pleased after that. Felt less angry at the world.
When I got back to class, some people (talk about the pot calling the kettle black) ATTACKED me for being a hypocrite.
“But you said it was a cruel game! Bla bla bla….”
Yes. I did.
It IS A POINTLESS GAME OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE.
I ADMIT THAT.
Violent games ARE violent. That’s obvious.
But wait. Why did it make me feel so satisfied?
“I laugh in the face of danger. Then I hide until it goes away.”
Why is it wrong to enjoy these games? At the very least, they’re an outlet for pent up anger and hostility.
Obviously I don’t mean that they should be made part of anger management courses,or anything like that-but what is SO WRONG with enjoying a game?
Its not like anyone actually dies..
Well, not in my head, anyway.
Wouldn’t it be better to channel your anger on a COMPUTER…than internalise it and spend years in therapy trying to figure out why you’re so damn screwed up?
[ Unless you’re someone who spends all his time at the cafe and looks a bit like an addict….ahem ahem…]
Say what you want.
I still think CS is violent.
But that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to enjoy it.
