Games in Asia says: "Therefore, it is in public interest that I present to you the four kinds of gamers who should take an arrow to the knee. Or even better, to the face."
I'm a mixture of all, should I shoot myself on the foot?
Yeah I'm all of the above. Unfortunately I'm also the type of gamer that jumps on the hype train and must pre-order that new game - only to never complete the game once it's released :(
That's watch dogs for me. I returned it in two days. I was so hype for it.
I'm more a mix like 1-3, and some of that is due to trophies/achievements. If it wasn't for platinums I wouldn't be a glutten for punishment for hardest difficulties and then curse up a storm like suicide mode on spec ops the line and the stupidity of the AI of squad mates.
Yup. Same. Definitely not a #2 though
Somehow, i have a feeling if i told someone they should shoot themselves in the comment section of N4G, i would be insta-banned. However, this article blatantly tells a large percentage of gamers to shoot themselves and the article has nearly passed submission. I'm a completionists, enjoy a challenge and love co-op. Eliminate all that from gaming, then it might as well be non-existent to me. Suggesting I should shoot myself because I enjoy my games differently than you is extreme. I know that the article is trying to be "cheeky" but i feel like the Title could have been less extreme and still have been able to be "fun."
Sadists? Shouldn't this title be "Masochists"? BTW, nice plot twist at the end.
Not only the author doesn't know the difference between sadist and masochist, he also doesn't know that Dark Souls doesn't let you choose a difficulty. http://www.gamesinasia.com/... So now, I want to shoot whoever wrote this dreck.
If you feel compelled to write an article like this, get out of gaming journalism. You just don't get it and the gaming world doesn't need your input. Edit - If I hadn't seen KentBlake's comment above I wouldn't have made it to the end of the article. You might want to think about how you word your headline and the beginning of your articles.
I've tried to shoot myself but It just bounced off me ...how can you kill that ,that has no life to begin with :-/
Sword of a Thousand Truths or.. headshot if zombie
Horrible title!Just to get hits!
Ooooh, nice little turnaround at the end, pal. Still could've used a less clickbait-y headline, though.
If you write pointless articles, you should shoot yourself.
If it is so pointless, then why did you click on it in the first place? You contradict yourself so easily. Don't click on an article unless you are interested. It's that simple, but maybe it's too complex for you to even understand, you troll.
How would he know if it was pointless if he didnt read it?
All my plats and all my 100% runs through Zelda games laugh at this mockery of a gaming article.
A lot of you ironically raging journalists need a real job.
Where are the members of the PC master race?
With this generation of kids, you shouldn't say such a thing. Really?
I'm sorry I have OCD. I guess I have to shoot myself.
According to this article, I should shoot myself 3 times. I don't get what the hell this guy's problem is. In FFX I NEED to dodge 200 lightning bolts if I want my lulu to actually be useful in the end game. People can play however they want. Really crappy article.
Just poor generalizations on the writers part.
You forgot fanboys and/or fanboys that change platform only to become fanboys for their NEW platform. "Shudder"
Nice! N4G gets top billing on the last one! :)
Made me smile..Sure he wasn't being serious.
This would cause a massive suicidal problem.
I'm a completionist.
The article wasnt suppose to be taken seriously lol was it satire?
1 & 2. Completionists can do it for themselves, doesn't have to be about "showing off", it's more about getting everything out of the game you bought. Creates a bit of a backlog problem though.
Stupidest fu&%ing opinion piece!
Stupid yea . .. but sure got your attention didn't it ?
I'm a collector. In any game with treasure, feathers, coins, secret areas I have to get them all. Borderline OCD. This is why I will never play Pokemon.
